Background

Haplogroup A11a is a branch on the maternal tree of human kind. The woman who founded this line lived between 1,400 and 10,700 years ago (Behar et al 2012b).

Four research studies include the A11a lineage. All have placed it in Tibetan peoples (Kang et al., 2013, Qin et al., 2010, Ji F et al., 2012, and Zhao et al., 2009). Specifically, it has been found in the Nyingchi, the Shannan, and the Lhasa peoples (Qin et al., 2010 and Ji F et al., 2012) as well as the Sherpa (Kang et al., 2013).

Geno 2 data has one participant with demographic information. They are from India.

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.
