DNA, Ancient Humans, and the Lineage of Noah

The article featured below is from a creationist peer-reviewed technical journal, so it is primarily by and for scientists. However, there are several parts that non-scientists can understand. We can skim through the details (mostly in the middle) and still learn some important things; let the scientists have the rest.

Biblical creationists have long pointed out that everyone has the same facts, and the interpretation of the facts are vital. In addition, scientists are human: They start with assumptions and presuppositions which heavily influence the results of their research.

The technical article linked here about Denisovan and Neanderthal DNA shows data is interpreted by users. Creationists see DNA going back to Noah.
The DNA of Neanderthals and Denisovans was used by members of the secular science industry to supposedly support evolution from apelike ancestors. Data were selected that should support their views. Drawing from work by Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, creation scientists were able to use much of the data to show how it relates to the sons of Noah. This supports recent creation. Causes of Neanderthal extinction are also discussed.
Evolutionists believe that modern humans have descended from a common ancestor with Neanderthals, who went extinct as modern humans continued to evolve. This view is supported by a recently published phylogenetic tree showing that Neanderthal and Denisovan Y chromosomes are different from all modern Y chromosomes. But this tree is rooted to show that all humans, including Neanderthals, and Denisovans, descend from a common ancestor with chimpanzees. The study presented here uses a reconstruction of this Y chromosome tree based on the biblical assumption that all humans have descended from Noah.
