Haplogroup A13 is an Asia branch on the maternal tree of humanity. Its age and precise origin are not yet clear.
In published studies, members of this line come from a diverse group of populations within Asia. In Siberia, it is part of the populations of the Buryat and the Khamnigan (Derenko et al., 2007). Hartmann et al., 2008 found it in the Naxi (Nakhi) people. A medical study included two members of the lineage but only specifies that they are Chinese (Wang CY et al., 2007). Finally, it is present in Japan (Mikami et al., 2013).
Geno 2 data includes two members of the lineage with maternal origins in China.
It is possible that the lineage originated in the Mongolian peoples of Sibera and spread to the Naxi and also to the Japanese.
mtDNA Haplogroup A13 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.

mtDNA Haplogroup A13 Data Sources
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.
