Nobel prize in physiology or medicine 2022 won by Svante Pääbo on the discovery of humans origins by studying extinct ancestral genomics DNA.

Nobel Prize in Physics 2022: Physiology or Medicine 2022

In our lives, we all came across one question where do we come from and what is our origin? Every human is unique from each other each homosepians have a different fingerprint as a sign of uniqueness. The Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine 2022: Svante Pääbo  research accomplished understanding the sequencing of the genome of the Neanderthal which was our extinct ancestral Humans. Today humans are transformed from the genes of our extinct humans called Denisova and Neanderthal which was discovered in the Svante Pääbo research.

Pääbo’s seminal work provides a basis for explaining what makes us uniquely human.

The Story of Our Origin: Svante Pääbo Discovery.

The main researchers of our origins are Palenthology and Archelogy which studies the different places of our ancestors to dig out the DNA to provide solid proof that humans first resided on Earth’s biggest continent Africa approximately around 3,00,00 years ago the researchers claimed that our closest known relatives Neanderthals were developed outside Africa and migrated to Europe and Western Asia from around 4 lakh years ago and around 30,000 years ago they went extinct. 

Today how our immune system reacts to infection is a sign of genes flowing inside us of our ancients who migrated out of Africa around 70,000 years ago. Knowing the difference between the flowing genes inside us and our extinct ancestral genes is the process called paleogenomics which is completely new scientific research by Svante where he studies the relationships between present-day humans and the extinct Neanderthals sequencing of genomic DNA recovered from archaic specimens.

 The Nobel Prize will be Honoured To:

Svante Pääbo was born in 1955 in Stockholm, Sweden. He defended his Ph.D. thesis in 1986 at Uppsala University and was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Zürich, Switzerland, and later at the University of California, Berkeley, USA. He became a Professor at the University of Munich, Germany in 1990. In 1999 he founded the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany where he is still active. He also holds a position as an adjunct Professor at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology, Japan. Source: nobelprize.org
