    The Denisovan admixture in Tibetans and other East Asians is very limited though.

    "At a given admixture time (Tadm), a single pulse of admixture is introduced from Denisovans to the ancestral population of Tibetans at a fixed proportion of 0.1%. We chose 0.1% as previous genome-wide estimates of Denisovan ancestry in modern-day East Asians range from 0.06% to 0.5%"

    they specificaly kept the EPAS1 gen allthough I can't imagine they stayed at high altitdudes since 48 ka - the estimated time of admixture
