Whole mitochondrial DNA sequencing in Alpine populations and the genetic history of the Neolithic Tyrolean Iceman
TLDR
It is suggested that mtDNA Iceman´s lineage could have disappeared during demographic events starting in Europe from ~5,000 ybp, and a scenario that could explain the apparent contrast between the phylogeographic features of maternal and paternal lineages of the Tyrolean Iceman within the context of the demographic dynamics happening in Europe.
New insights into the Tyrolean Iceman's origin and phenotype as inferred by whole-genome sequencing.
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of the Iceman is reported and 100% concordance between the previously reported mitochondrial genome sequence and the consensus sequence generated from the genomic data is shown.
A Complete Mitochondrial Genome Sequence from a Mesolithic Wild Aurochs (Bos primigenius)
Background The derivation of domestic cattle from the extinct wild aurochs (Bos primigenius) has been well-documented by archaeological and genetic studies. Genetic studies point towards the
The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of an 11,450-year-old Aurochsen (Bos primigenius) from Central Italy
TLDR
Analysis of the complete mitochondrial genome of a pre-Neolithic Italian aurochs supports the hypothesis that modern European breeds have multiple geographic origins and suggests that previously identified sub-groups within the widespread modern cattle mitochondrial T clade are polyphyletic.
new insights into the Tyrolean Iceman's origin and phenotype as inferred by whole-genome
TLDR
The complete genome sequence of the Iceman is reported and 100% concordance between the previously reported mitochondrial genome sequence and the consensus sequence generated from the genomic data is shown.
Mitochondrial DNA studies of the Pazyryk people (4th to 3rd centuries BC) from northwestern Mongolia
The discovery and excavations in 2006 by joint Russian–German–Mongolian expeditions of the Pazyryk culture burial sites (4th to 3rd centuries BC, Early Iron Age, the Scythian period) in the Altai
The Current Situation of the Tyrolean Iceman
TLDR
Since the discovery of the 5,300-year-old Copper Age individual in 1991, in a glacier in the Eastern Italian Alps, a variety of morphological, biochemical, and molecular analyses have been performed that revealed important insights into his origin, his life habits, and the circumstances surrounding his demise.
Ancient DNA reveals male diffusion through the Neolithic Mediterranean route
TLDR
The Y-haplotype lineages characterized and the study of their current repartition in European populations confirm a greater influence of the Mediterranean than the Central European route in the peopling of southern Europe during the Neolithic transition.
Phylogenetic Position of a Copper Age Sheep (Ovis aries) Mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
A phylogenetic network based on a new cladistic notation for the mitochondrial diversity of domestic sheep shows that the Ötzi's sheep falls within haplogroup B, thus demonstrating that sheep belonging to this haplogroups were already present in the Alps more than 5,000 years ago.

The mitochondrial lineage U8a reveals a Paleolithic settlement in the Basque country
TLDR
It has been demonstrated, for the first time, that Basques show the oldest lineages in Europe for subhaplogroup U8a, and coalescence times for these lineages suggest their presence in the Basque country since the Upper Paleolithic.
The mtDNA Legacy of the Levantine Early Upper Palaeolithic in Africa
TLDR
The early Upper Palaeolithic population(s) carrying M1 and U6 did not return to Africa along the southern coastal route of the “out of Africa” exit, but from the Mediterranean area; and the North African Dabban and European Aurignacian industries derived from a common Levantine source.
Fine characterization of the Iceman's mtDNA haplogroup.
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the Iceman's mtDNA belongs to the K1 subcluster, yet it does not fit any of the three known branches (a, b, and c) into which the K 1 subclusters is presently divided.
Saami and Berbers--an unexpected mitochondrial DNA link.
TLDR
The sequencing of entire human mitochondrial DNAs belonging to haplogroup U reveals that this clade arose shortly after the "out of Africa" exit and rapidly radiated into numerous regionally distinct subclades, and reveals a direct maternal link between those European hunter-gatherer populations and the Berbers.
Major genomic mitochondrial lineages delineate early human expansions
TLDR
The relative relationships among the 42 human lineages are shown and more accurate temporal calibrations are presented than have been previously possible to give new perspectives as how modern humans spread in the Old World.

Evidence for a genetic discontinuity between Neandertals and 24,000-year-old anatomically modern Europeans
TLDR
Following the most stringent current standards for validation of ancient DNA sequences, it is shown that the mtDNAs of two anatomically modern Homo sapiens sapiens individuals of the Cro-Magnon type dated at about 23 and 25 thousand years ago fall well within the range of variation of today's humans, but differ sharply from the available sequences of the chronologically closer Neandertals.
Origin and evolution of Native American mtDNA variation: a reappraisal.
TLDR
Reappraising mtDNA control region sequences from aboriginal Siberians and Native Americans confirms in agreement with linguistic, archaeological and climatic evidence that the major wave of migration brought one population, ancestral to the Amerinds, from northeastern Siberia to America 20,000-25,000 years ago.
Sequence analysis of bacterial DNA in the colon and stomach of the Tyrolean Iceman.
TLDR
Tissue samples aseptically taken from the stomach and the colon of the mummy were utilized for DNA extraction, and the DNA was PCR-amplified, using primer pairs designed to bind to fragments of the 16s ribosomal RNA gene (16s rDNA) of a broad range of bacteria.
