When modern humans left Africa and started their endeavor to conquer the world ca. 60,000 years ago, they have met and admixed with other archaic humans such as Neandertals and Denisovans. The results of these admixtures can still be found in the genomes of present-day non-Africans, who carry about two percent of DNA in their genomes that is of Neandertal ancestry, and people in Oceania who carry additional about five percent of Denisovan DNA. These archaic remains still influence immunity, skin and hair morphology and behavioral phenotypes in present-day people.
