Mitochondrial DNA variation in Jordanians and their genetic relationship to other Middle East populations

Mitochondrial DNA variation in Jordanians and their genetic relationship to other Middle East populations

Abstract:

Background: The Levant is a crucial region in understanding human migrations between Africa and Eurasia. Although some mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) studies have been carried out in this region, they have not included the Jordan area. This paper deals with the mtDNA composition of two Jordan populations.
