Phylogenetic analysis of diagnostic reads. A potential Denisovan NUMT inferred from diagnostic alleles. a Maximum likelihood tree for a 142 bp sequence generated from reads that contain the diagnostic allele for the Denisovan-Sima de los Huesos branch at position 9884. Bootstrap values over 50 are indicated at branch locations. b Pairwise nucleotide distances vs. frequency (in logarithmic scale) within and between 97 modern humans (MHU, purple), 17 Neanderthals (NEA, blue), four Denisovans (DEN, green) and a nuclear insert of mitochondrial DNA (NUMT) (NUM, empty bars)
