Haplogroup A22 is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity. Its age is not yet clear. Like its parent though, it traces its origin to Asia.

Research information comes from two published papers and a data set submitted directly to GenBank. One sample comes from an ethnic Han Chinese living in Colorado (Zheng et al., 2011). Two more samples come from a medical study. They do not include demographics, but the study was done in China (Liu et al., 2012). The last sample was directly submitted and comes from China (Jaing et al., 2014).

Geno 2 data does not include a member of this line.

Based on available information, this is definitely an East Asian and very likely a Chinese lineage.

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.
