The Japan Prize Foundation said Tuesday it will award the 2020 Japan Prize to two scientists from overseas for their contributions to research into Neanderthals and the development of fifth-generation, or 5G, wireless communications technology.

The prize will go to Svante Paabo for his work on decoding the genome sequence of Neanderthals and Robert Gallager for the development of error correction codes used in 5G technology.
