most likely not; yet that is their claim. and to fully sequence 3 nuclear and 20 mitochondrial genomes and annotate them, as they assert, could easily take five years with a small number of personnel and tight budget.

2) The sequencing of three complete genomes for a single species is simply stupid. No real scientist would bother. They would instead sequence a single complete genome as a baseline and then simply do variation profiling on the other samples. They're supposedly trying to identify a species, not diagnose multiple scelrosis.
i agree. good detective work on post 18 btw.

but it would be a hoot to read their in-peer-review 'publication,' assuming it actually exists.

I read on another website that the publication will be released in about 7 to 10 days.

Smells of BS. The heavily supported labs of people like Svante Paablo didn't even consider doing 20 sequencings when they did the Neanderthal. Also, where would they get that many confirmed Sasquach samples?

I found this bio on Dr. Melba Ketchums.

Dallas November 24, 2012

A team of scientists can verify that their 5-year long DNA study, currently under peer-review, confirms the existence of a novel hominin hybrid species, commonly called “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch,” living in North America. Researchers’ extensive DNA sequencing suggests that the legendary Sasquatch is a human relative that arose approximately 15,000 years ago as a hybrid cross of modern Homo sapiens with an unknown primate species.


“Our study has sequenced 20 whole mitochondrial genomes and utilized next generation sequencing to obtain 3 whole nuclear genomes from purported Sasquatch samples. The genome sequencing shows that Sasquatch mtDNA is identical to modern Homo sapiens, but Sasquatch nuDNA is a novel, unknown hominin related to Homo sapiens and other primate species. Our data indicate that the North American Sasquatch is a hybrid species, the result of males of an unknown hominin species crossing with female Homo sapiens.

Are they still printing "The Weekly World News"? I sure miss getting all the latest about Elvis and Bat Boy.

I'd like to believe there's a bigfoot out there, but I've seen no evidence that would convince me there is one. I've spent a lot of time in the woods too. I see shows like Finding Bigfoot and what I see are a bunch of people who come from a largely urban background mistaking every bear and deer and moose snapping a twig with having sasquatches all around them.

There's no conspiracy by scientists here to ignore it either. If someone is convinced they have hair or tissue samples from a bigfoot, plenty of credible labs would be willing to test it for DNA if you pay them for their efforts. The lab involved in this is not very credible.

Sasquatch hunter "M. S. Ketchum"?

Is she listed in the staff credits at the end of Car Talk episodes?

Along with Dewy, Cheetum, and Howe.

I think the one filmed in the 1967 Patterson film is the real deal. A few years ago, scientist stabilized the Bigfoot in the film like they did with Kennedy in the Zapruder film and you could clearly see definite muscle movement and it had breast. It was a female.
