Haplogroup R1a1c is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity. Its age is not clear, but it is younger than its parent branch that is between 4,700 and 9,400 years old (Behar et al., 2012b). Like that parent, the first woman to have belong to this line was likely born in the Caucasus region.
Information on the lineage comes from one published study. One of the people in it is an ethnic Arab while the other comes from the Balkar people of the Caucasus. (Fedorova et al., 2013)
Geno 2 data does not currently have a member of this line.
mtDNA Haplogroup R1a1c 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 R1a1c 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 resuts over to build 17.
|Hg ID||Publication||Missing Variants||Additional Variants|
|Hap5008665||Fedorova et al., 2013||none||R1a1c:309.1CC, 315.1C, 16355|
|Hap5008668||Fedorova et al., 2013||none||R1a1c:309.1C, 315.1C, 524.1AC, 1119, 7356|
Geno 2.0 Data
Data from Geno 2.0 is derived from the The National Geographic Society’s Genographic Project — the DAR. The Hg ID is specific to this site and is used to protect the identities of those who take part in Genographic research. Birth Country, Mother's Birth Country, and Maternal Grandmother's Birth Country have been normalized from DAR database fields. The Maternal Origin is determined based on the three previous fields.
Note: Geno 2.0 results currently use Phylotree build 16. I am working on changing resuts over to build 17.
