Haplogroup A16 is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity. Its age is not yet clear.

Information on the lineage comes from two studies. The first found it in the Buryat population (Derenko et al., 2007). The second has a member from an ethnic Turkish group (Schönberg et al., 2011).

The Geno 2 data set does not include a member of this lineage.

Based on limited information, the line was born in Asia. The exact region cannot be determined though.

mtDNA Haplogroup A16 Phylotree History 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 A16 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.
