Controversy has surrounded the setting of appropriate conservation policies to deal with hybridisation and introgression (genetic admixture resulting from backcrossing with one of the parent species).
Some degree of gene flow is a normal, evolutionary process; however, hybridisation with or without introgression may, nevertheless, threaten a rare species' existence.
"Our work shows clearly that the patterns currently seen in the Neanderthal genome are not exceptional, and are in line with our expectations of what we would see without hybridisation. So, if any hybridisation happened - it's difficult to conclusively prove it never happened - then it would have been minimal and much less than what people are claiming now," said Dr Andrea Manica, from the University of Cambridge, who led the study.
