Description:
What can we learn from the genes of our closest evolutionary relative? Neanderthal Man tells the scientific and personal story of geneticist Svante Pääbo's mission to answer that very question, culminating in his sequencing of the Neanderthal genome in 2009. Beginning with the study of DNA in Egyptian mummies in the early 1980s, Neanderthal Man describes the events, intrigues, failures, and triumphs of these scientifically rich years through the lens of the pioneer heading the effort.
