# Ancestors

## Monkey rock bashing resembles tools made by early human ancestors | Science

Hefting a potato-size rock, wild long-tailed macaques (Macaca fascicularis) in Thailand smash oil palm nuts on stone anvils. As they pound away, sharp flakes sometimes fly off from their hammer stones—flakes that are “almost indistinguishable” from stone tools made by early human relatives more than 3 million years ago, according to a controversial new study. Indeed, the researchers argue, the monkeys’ flakes are so similar to our ancestors’ tools that many…

## Find ancestors of each node in the given Graph

Given a graph in the form of an edge list and a directed graph, return all the ancestors of the nodes in any order. An ancestor is a node one step ahead in the hierarchy on the same path reachable to the current node. Note: The graph has no cycle.Examples:Input: N = 5, Edges = {{0, 4}, {4, 1}, {4, 3}, {1, 2}}Output: Result = {{}, {0, 4}, {0, 1, 4}, {0, 4}, {0}}Explanation:Pictorial representation og example 1As the graph shows the that there are no ancestors to node 0 hence the value of Result = {} and for the rest of the…

## Lab-grown ancient nose receptors reveal how our ancestors smelled

Our ancestors probably didn’t smell good, but did they smell well? A new study has grown odor receptors from Neanderthals and Denisovans, and tested their sensitivities to different smells compared to modern humans.For hundreds of thousands of years, Homo sapiens shared the world with other species of archaic humans. Neanderthals lived throughout Europe and some of Asia, while Denisovans lived across Russia and down into southeast Asia, occasionally intermingling and interbreeding with each other and modern humans.There’s…

## These 5 Traces of Ancient Ancestors Still Exist in Human Bodies Today : ScienceAlert

Many of us are returning to work or school after spending time with relatives over the summer period. Sometimes we can be left wondering how on earth we are related to some of these people with whom we seemingly have nothing in common (especially with a particularly annoying relative).However, in evolutionary terms, we all share ancestors if we go far enough back in time. This means many features in our bodies stretch back thousands or even millions of years in our great family tree of life.In biology, the term…

## World’s Oldest Meal Helps Unravel Mystery of Our Earliest Animal Ancestors

## Researchers revive 2.6 billion-year-old ancestors of CRISPR gene-editing tool

A group of researchers managed to do something intriguing and revolutionary. According to a new study published in Nature Microbiology, international researchers have managed to revive ancient CRISPR ancestors that date back as far as 2.6 billion years ago. These ancestors, they say, contain working systems that could have revolutionary applications. Gene editing has taken a massive swing in recent years, with tons of advanced being made over the past couple of years alone. From trying to create hypoallergenic…

Their presumed links with paganism and witchcraft meant they were often treated with suspicion. But despite their association with the supernatural, medieval manuscripts showcase surprisingly playful images of our furry friends.

## Human ancestors may have sailed across the Aegean Sea

In their paper published in the journal Quaternary International, the group describes analyzing sea level drops in the
