Using a simple mouth swab, we can do some pretty amazing things for you with your DNA.
Using samples from ancient remains found by archaeologists, scientists have been able to map the DNA of two extinct human species - Neanderthals and Denisovans - which interbred with our own species - modern humans - to create hybrids.
These hybrids then had their own children within the modern human population, who carried genes from their archaic human ancestors. Remnants of these ancestors still exist in modern humans today.
Living DNA is excited to be able to use all of this data to tell you a number of things about the DNA you have inherited from your Archaic Human ancestors.
