Chris,did you hear last nights show
Yes, and I am on my second way through. I skipped hour one, which was another guest.
Knapp had signed a confidentiality almost 3 years ago, and a paper has been written and is currently being vetted. It was a multi-disciplinary paper from forensic scientists, anthropologists, and others summarizing the data and each providing conclusions and discussions.
She regrets she ever said yes since it has cost her business and money.
She claims she absolutely has sequenced DNA, and the genetic material is uncontaminated DNA, and this has been confirmed by blind studies in University and private labs, in the USA and in other nations. When I say "she" this means the entire team, not just her lab. She is a veterinarian scientist.
A Russian who was on the vette list released his information early which allowed everyone to break parts of their confidentiality agreements, including Knapp, and forced her to make public statements.
There were multiple samples submitted, and there is more data still being processed, and it will for some years to come as long as the money holds out.
The data is hair and skin that was submitted and pre-screened by a group, or groups of Bigfoot researchers and based on case reports, and field investigations.
Many, many samples were excluded as they immediately showed up in the data base as everything from deer to bear.
The ones of most importance sequenced out as mitochondrial material, and tracks back to a divergence from current humans about 15,000 year ago. The material is fresh, not antiquarian. This would make them people, not apes.
There is antiquarian evidence, but it has been filed as it is much harder and more expensive to work with.
That being said, until the data is released, it is still only a discussion.
