Update: Ph.D. Biochemist Supports Ketchum Sasquatch DNA Study

Melba Ketchum posted the following quote on facebook, presumably by David H. Swenson, Ph.D.

I did more blast analyses and came up with the same confusion the independent labs had. The genome has some good human matches and some unknowns.

The sequences are not contaminated, near as I can tell. I have not searched for open reading frames, but that is beyond the scope of my tools. The close matches are gapped with sequences that match nothing. AMEL and MY genes match humans in some cases, in others, not. If I am wrong, I would like to be shown with data, not uninformed opinion from “experts.”David H. Swenson, Ph.D.

Tip o’ the hat again to Cryptomundian edsbigfoot.
