Haplogroup A15b is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity.
Available information on this line comes from two studies. The first includes a member from Ehime, Japan (Nohira et al., 2009). The second study is medical, and the subject may be Chinese (Wang CY et al., 2012).
Geno 2 includes to participants from this lineage, but their demographic information is limited.
mtDNA Haplogroup A15b 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 A15b 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 results over to build 17.
