Neanderthal Feld1 DNA

Authors had provided Neanderthal genomes with their publications. I converted the raw data of Feld1 sample into formats familiar to genetic genealogists. I also filtered with SNPs tested by DNA testing companies like FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry in order to upload to GEDMatch but found this ancient DNA has less SNPs that are common with them. Hence, I did not upload this to GEDMatch. However, complete SNPs are available for download.
