National Geographic Geno 2.0 Text

Haplogroup: HV1
Age: 18,695 ± 5,678 Years Ago
Origin: Anatolia
Blurb: This branch was born about 19,000 years ago in Anatolia (present-day Turkey). It remained largely confined to Anatolia and the surrounding region.

Today, this line is present at the highest frequencies in the Armenian population (11 percent). It is about 5 percent of the overall population of Turkey. It is around 2 percent of maternal lineages in Greece and about 1 percent of maternal lineages in Italy.

mtDNA Haplogroup HV1 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.
