Even though Neanderthals vanished about 40,000 years ago, their DNA lives on in us. Research tells us that they interbred with humans around 60,000 years ago.
23andMe can tell you how much of your DNA is derived from Neanderthals and how that compares to others. We can even point to specific Neanderthal DNA that is associated with traits that you might have — like height and back hair.
