Origin: Africa
Mutations: T5580C C6209T A14071G
Parent Branch: L1c2b1a'b
Descendant branch(s): L1c2b1a1

Background

Haplogroup L1c2b1a is a branch on the maternal tree of human kind. Its age is between 23,200 and 35,700 years (Behar et al., 2012b).

With an origin in Africa, what is known about this lineage comes from two published research studies (Batini et al., 2011 and Zheng et al., 2012). The first found a member of this line in a West Central African Pygmy group. The second found a member of this line in the Luhya from Webuye, Kenya. The Luhya are a Bantu group.

Phylotree History

Phylotree.org is the maternal (mtDNA) tree of humanity. It is maintained by Dr. Mannis Van Oven. Each build is a major update to the tree. The current build is #17.

GenBank Samples

GenBank is a database of genetic sequence data. It is run by the United States National Institute of Health. It serves as the main repository for mtDNA full sequence profiles. Samples come both from published academic literature and donations from genetic genealogy community members. In addition to GenBank samples, listings below may include other samples published but not submitted to GenBank such as those from the HapMap project.

Note: GenBank results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.

Geno 2.0 Data

Data from Geno 2.0 is derived from the The National Geographic Society’s Genographic Project — the DAR. The Hg ID is specific to this site and is used to protect the identities of those who take part in Genographic research. Birth Country, Mother's Birth Country, and Maternal Grandmother's Birth Country have been normalized from DAR database fields. The Maternal Origin is determined based on the three previous fields.

Note: Geno 2.0 results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.
