mtDNA Sequences

The paper entitled “Reduced-Median-Network Analysis of Complete Mitochondrial DNA Coding Region Sequences for the Major African, Asian, and European Haplogroups” by Corinna Herrnstadt, Joanna L. Elson, Eoin Fahy, Gwen Preston, Douglass M. Turnbull, Christen Anderson, Soumitra S. Ghosh, Jerrold M. Olefsky, M. Flint Beal, Robert E. Davis, and Neil Howell (American Journal of Human Genetics, 70:1152-1171, Errata, 71:448-449, 2002.) describes mitochondrial DNA sequences of 560 maternally unrelated individuals from the United States and the United Kingdom.
