National Geographic Geno 2.0 Text

Haplogroup: U2e
Age: 16,700 ± 6,950 Years Ago
Origin: West or Central Asia
Blurb: This point in your ancestors' journey began in either West or Central Asia around 17,000 years ago. The climate of the last glacial maximum forced members of this lineage to remain in refugia. When the Earth warmed, they expanded across western Eurasia.

Today, members of this lineage live in many of the places their ancestors did, although they are often a minor part of the local population.

mtDNA Haplogroup U2e 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 resuts over to build 17.

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.
