The African mitochondrial (mt) phylogeny is coarsely resolved but the majority of population data generated so far is limited to the analysis of the first hypervariable segment (HVS-1) of the control region (CR). Therefore, this study aimed on the investigation of the entire CR of 190 unrelated Somali individuals to enrich the severely underrepresented African mtDNA pool. The majority (60.5 %) of the haplotypes were of sub-Saharan origin with L0a1d, L2a1h and L3f being the most frequently… Expand
Carriers of mitochondrial DNA macrohaplogroup L3 basal lineages migrated back to Africa from Asia around 70,000 years ago
TLDR
The possibility that mtDNA macrohaplogroup L3 matured in Eurasia and returned to Africa as basal L3 lineages around 70 kya is assessed, congruent with a model proposing an out-of-Africa migration into Asia, following a northern route, of early anatomically modern humans carrying pre-L3 mtDNA lineages. Expand
Carriers of mitochondrial DNA macrohaplogroup L3 basic lineages migrated back to Africa from Asia around 70,000 years ago
TLDR
The possibility that mtDNA macrohaplogroup L3 matured in Eurasia and returned to Africa as basic L3 lineages around 70 kya is assessed, congruent with a model proposing an out-of-Africa of early anatomically modern humans around 125 kya. Expand
Linking between genetic structure and geographical distance: Study of the maternal gene pool in the Ethiopian population
TLDR
It could be affirmed that, on a continent scale, the mtDNA pool of Africa, Europe and the Middle East might fall under the IBD model. Expand
Eight Millennia of Matrilineal Genetic Continuity in the South Caucasus
TLDR
It is found that the lowest genetic distance in this dataset is between modern Armenians and the ancient individuals, as also reflected in both network analyses and discriminant analysis of principal components. Expand
The immigrant population from Mozambique in Lisbon: Updated mitochondrial DNA portrait
Abstract Since the end of the 1970s Portugal had a role in the migratory movements, becoming a destiny for immigrants of a wide range of nationalities, especially from the African continent.Expand
High-quality mtDNA control region sequences from 680 individuals sampled across the Netherlands to establish a national forensic mtDNA reference database.
TLDR
This dataset will serve as a national reference database for mtDNA applications in forensic and missing person casework in the Netherlands and will improve its overall data content and geographic coverage in the interest of all EMPOP users worldwide. Expand
Genetic portrait of Lisboa immigrant population from Angola with mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The results show that this immigrant population inhabitant in Lisboa presents a genetic profile that is characteristic of African populations, which does not contradict the historical data concerning colonization of Angola. Expand
Mapping human dispersals into the Horn of Africa from Arabian Ice Age refugia using mitogenomes
TLDR
The presence of R0a in Southwest Arabia in the Holocene at the nexus of a trading network that developed after ~3 ka between Africa and the Indian Ocean led to some gene flow even further afield, into Iran, Pakistan and India. Expand
Determination of population origin: a comparison of autosomal SNPs, Y-chromosomal and mtDNA haplogroups using a Malagasy population as example
TLDR
The analysis of autosomal SNPs could confirm the admixed character of the Malagasy population, even if it pointed to a greater African influence as detectable by Y-chromosomal or mtDNA analysis. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation in Sub-Saharan Africa: Forensic data from a mixed West African sample, Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), and Rwanda.
TLDR
The analysis of mtDNA variation and genetic comparisons with published data revealed low random match probabilities in all three datasets and typical West African and East African diversity, respectively. Expand

MtDNA diversity of Ghana: a forensic and phylogeographic view
TLDR
It is found extensive genetic admixture between the Ghanaian lineages and those from adjacent populations diminishing with geographical distance, reflecting the long but also recent history of migration waves within West Africa mainly caused by changing environmental conditions. Expand
Genetic diversity in the Iberian Peninsula determined from mitochondrial sequence analysis
TLDR
The timing of divergence of populations within Iberia points to a shared ancestry of all populations in the Upper Palaeolithic, and lineage diversity comparisons with European and North African populations shows the Iberian Peninsula to be more similar to other European populations, although a small number of Iberians lineages can be traced to North Africa. Expand
Phylogeographic analysis of mitochondrial DNA in northern Asian populations.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the southern Siberian mtDNA pool harbors several lineages associated with the Late Upper Paleolithic and/or early Neolithic dispersals from both eastern Asia and southwestern Asia/southern Caucasus. Expand
Ethiopian mitochondrial DNA heritage: tracking gene flow across and around the gate of tears.
TLDR
Phylogeographic identification of potential founder haplotypes revealed that approximately one-half of haplogroup L0-L5 lineages in Yemenis have close or matching counterparts in southeastern Africans, compared with a minor share in Ethiopians. Expand
The making of the African mtDNA landscape.
TLDR
The results suggest that the southeast Bantu speakers have a composite origin on the maternal line of descent, with approximately 44% of lineages deriving from West Africa, approximately 21% from either West or Central Africa, Approximately 30% from East Africa, and approximately 5% from southern African Khoisan-speaking groups.

Mitochondrial lineage M1 traces an early human backflow to Africa
TLDR
This study provides evidence that M1, or its ancestor, had an Asiatic origin, and a relevant fraction of M1a lineages present today in the European Continent and nearby islands possibly had a Jewish instead of the commonly proposed Arab/Berber maternal ascendance. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA structure in the Arabian Peninsula
TLDR
The lack of primitive autochthonous M and N sequences in the Arabian Peninsula suggests that this area has been more a receptor of human migrations, including historic ones, from Africa, India, Indonesia and even Australia, than a demographic expansion center along the proposed southern coastal route.

Mitochondrial DNA control region sequences from Nairobi (Kenya): inferring phylogenetic parameters for the establishment of a forensic database
TLDR
A high quality mtDNA control region sequence database for urban Nairobi is established as both a reference database for forensic investigations, and as a tool to examine the genetic variation of Kenyan sequences in the context of known African variation. Expand
Genetic Evidence for Complexity in Ethnic Differentiation and History in East Africa
TLDR
The Nyangatom and Daasanach were found to be significantly differentiated, while each of them displays close affinities with some Tanzanian populations, suggesting processes, associated with periods of isolation, could explain the high diversity and strong genetic structure found in East Africa.

Analysis of mtDNA HVRII in several human populations using an immobilised SSO probe hybridisation assay
TLDR
The technique used is a rapid and simple method to detect human variation in the mtDNA HVRII in a large number of samples, which might be useful in forensic and population genetic studies. Expand
