mtDNA Haplogroup V2 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.

1 thought on “V2”

  1. I am part of this Geno 2 project, so cool to have donated to an emerging science. My husband was a participant also, working on my son 👍🏻 My halo group is V2, and have Many Neanderthal Variants. Following the latest science for “ancient divergence of Neanderthals and Denisovans, using “algorithms”.

    So very cool stuff👍🏻
