Haplogroup A11 is an East Asian branch on the maternal tree of human kind. The woman who founded this line lived between 12,800 and 21,900 years ago (Behar et al., 2012b).

Published studies include one person from this lineage who is not one of its two daughter branches. They are from Shannan. (Qin et al., 2010)

Geno 2 data does not have a participant from this line.

This line was likely born in the Tibetan Plateau based on the origins for its daughter lines.

mtDNA Haplogroup A11 Data Sources

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 results over to build 17.
