Haplogroup U5 is a branch on the maternal tree of humanity.

National Geographic Geno 2.0 Text

Haplogroup: U5
Age: 20,280 ± 2,980 Years Ago
Origin: West Asia or Europe
Blurb: This point in your ancestors’ journey began in West Asia. Many from this line traveled early to Europe, where they settled and established themselves long before the last glacial maximum and the Neolithic farmers who came after. In more recent times, with the climate change of the last glacial maximum period, some from this line moved back to Africa.

Today, this line is most common in Europe. It is about 20 percent of maternal lines in Slovenia, about 20 percent of those in Finland, and about 18 percent of Luxembourg. It is about 12 percent of the population in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Latvia.

Interest Point: This line is represented in the Neolithic Bell Beaker site in Germany.

mtDNA Haplogroup U5 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.
