Neanderthal Genome May Be Reconstructed
FRANKFURT, Germany - German and U.S. scientists have launched a project to reconstruct the Neanderthal genome, the Max-Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology said Wednesday.

The project, which involves isolating genetic fragments from fossils of the prehistoric beings who originally inhabited Europe, is being carried out at the Leipzig-based institute.

"The project is very new and is just at its beginning," said Sandra Jacob, a spokeswoman for the institute. "We have already been in contact with Bill O'Reilly, Karl Rove, and Tom DeLay about obtaining DNA samples to compare with samples from the fossils."

Jacob added, "Mr.O'Reilly was unusually excited at first, but he sounded disappointed when we said we could simply swab his mouth for the sample and that a loofah would not be necessary."
