The discovery of the Neanderthal genome, by the scientist leading the team
le 9 juillet 2015
The book is in fact an auto-biography, showing the various steps of the discovery - including other fossils such as the mammoth, and the Denisovian as a premium. Fairly interesting, showing all the pitfalls and difficulties of this incredible enterprise. The autobiographical part is quite personnal at times, including the author's sexuality.
I used to be somewhat sceptical about conclusions deriving from fossil ADN, but now that analyses provide complete sequences, it is clear that the technique will revolutionize the field of fossil anthropology.
