||SNP analysis. West Africans are used to represent modern humans in this analysis because in
SOM 15-17, researchers find no evidence for gene flow between Neandertals and the ancestors of West Africans
after their initial divergence. This makes interpretation of the population divergence date much simpler.
||Note-this is different than the Neandertal-Yoruba (African human) genetic divergence time which is 825,000 years BNID 105416.
