"This is a drop in the bucket if you consider that the human genome is 3 billion bases," said Edward Rubin of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, who led one of the research teams.http://www.livescience.com/health/061115_neanderthal_dna.html Neanderthal and other Fossils Play List - http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=A23280A14AC9F2A6 Edward Rubin of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in Berkeley, California, states that recent genome testing of Neanderthals suggests human and Neanderthal DNA are some 99.5% to nearly 99.9% identical.[78][79] Body paint A 2009 report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) on two archaeological sites in the Murcia province of southern Spain records the discovery of shells showing pigment residues, and concludes that these were used by the Neanderthals as make-up containers. Sticks of the black pigment manganese have previously been discovered in Africa. These may have been used as body paint by Neanderthals.[73] In 2008 Richard E. Green et al. from Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Munich, Germany published the full sequence of Neanderthal mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and suggested that "Neandertals had a long-term effective population size smaller than that of modern humans."[82] Writing in Nature about Green et al.'s findings, James Morgan asserted that the mtDNA sequence contained clues that Neanderthals lived in "small and isolated populations, and probably did not interbreed with their human neighbours."[83][84] Shanidar 4, the "flower burial" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanidar
