Kostenki14 Ancient DNA

The origin of contemporary Europeans remains contentious. The authors obtained a genome sequence from Kostenki 14 in European Russia dating to 38,700 to 36,200 years ago, one of the oldest fossils of Anatomically Modern Humans from Europe. I converted this raw data of Kostenki 14 into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry and upload to GEDMatch as kit# F999936.
