Check out the #bg2010 hash-tag on twitter. There's a lot of interesting tidbits. Here are some tweets from the presentation on the Neandertal genome in relation to the Denisova hominin (a.k.a. "X-woman"):

lukejostins SP: The Denisova finger is from the Neanderthal line, but didn't interbreed with humans, hence looking like an outgroup ... dgmacarthur: SP claims that Neanderthals and Denisova archaics are more closely related than either are to humans; intriguing. ... dgmacarthur: SP: next steps: generate 10-20X coverage of Neanderthal, sequence other archaic humans (e.g. Denisova).

I hope Dr. Daniel MacAthur and Luke Jostins will say more when they get back to Perfidious Albion.
