Researchers sequenced the genome of Oase 2 (41,500–39,500 years old) to high coverage (20-fold) from its petrous bone.

Around 6% of Oase 2's genome is Neanderthal in origin, which is lower than for Oase 1; however, this is still much higher than expected based on its age and what is seen in other Upper Palaeolithic genomes.
