Denisovans had more than homo sapiens

Scientists compared DNA from 125 population groups, including humans and related ancient populations. This showed that modern humans have much less DNA than such now-extinct groups as the Denisovans and Neandertals. Some people from Oceania (purple) carry duplicated DNA inherited from Denisovans (black). No Neandertals nor modern humans carry the duplication (indicated by open circles). The black “Archaic” circle represents DNA from a Denisovan and from a Neandertal.
The new study of human diversity shows that our ancestors carried 40.7 million more DNA base pairs than people do today.

People didn’t just lose DNA. They also gained some.
