Mitochondrial DNA variability in the Polish Roma population has been studied by means of hypervariable segment I and II (HVS I and II) sequencing and restriction fragment‐length polymorphism analysis of the mtDNA coding region. The mtDNA haplotypes detected in the Polish Roma fall into the common Eurasian mitochondrial haplogroups (H, U3, K, J1, X, I, W, and M*). The results of complete mtDNA sequencing clearly indicate that the Romani M*‐lineage belongs to the Indian‐specific haplogroup M5… Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in Slovaks, with Application to the Roma Origin
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that the Roma‐specific M‐lineages observed in gene pools of different Slavonic populations (Slovaks, Poles and Russians), belong to Indian‐specific haplogroups M5a1 and M35. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA diversity of the Roma from northeastern Bosnia, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
TLDR
The data suggest that mitochondrial gene pool of the Roma population from northeastern Bosnia might be a consequence of early parting and the later different migration routes that are part of their demographic history, and this correlates with the migratory history ofThe Roma. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in the Czech Population, with Application to the Ethnic History of Slavs
TLDR
It is suggested that the presence of East Eurasian mtDNA haplotypes is not an original feature of the gene pool of the proto-Slavs but rather may be mostly a consequence of admixture with Central Asian nomadic tribes, who migrated into Central and Eastern Europe in the early Middle Ages. Expand
Complex interactions of the Eastern and Western Slavic populations with other European groups as revealed by mitochondrial DNA analysis.
TLDR
The results of genetic structure analyses suggest that Russians from Velikii Novgorod area (northwestern Russia) and Poles from Suwalszczyzna (northeastern Poland) differ from all remaining Polish and Russian samples, and northwestern Russians and northeastern Poles bear some similarities to Baltic and Finno-Ugrian groups of northeastern Europe.

Analysis of mitochondrial DNA variation in the Egyptian population and its implications for forensic DNA analysis
TLDR
A large number of unique mitochondrial haplotypes indicates a high diversity of mtDNA in the Egyptian population, which has a direct impact on forensic applications, since the significance of a match between an evidence sample and a reference sample depends on the population frequency of a profile.

Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Variation and Phylogenetic Analysis in Japanese Individuals from Miyazaki Prefecture
TLDR
The results show that an mtDNA database is very useful in forensic examination for identification of individuals, particularly the database for Miyazaki Prefecture, and contribute to expansion of the Japanese mt DNA database. Expand
Origins, admixture and founder lineages in European Roma
TLDR
The exact haplotype matching analysis of both uniparental lineages consistently points to a Northwestern origin of the proto-Roma population within the Indian subcontinent. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation of modern Tuscans supports the near eastern origin of Etruscans.
TLDR
Interpopulation comparisons reveal that the modern population of Murlo, a small town of Etruscan origin, is characterized by an unusually high frequency (17.5%) of Near Eastern mtDNA haplogroups, supporting a direct and rather recent genetic input from the Near East--a scenario in agreement with the Lydian origin of ETruscans.

Refining the genetic portrait of Portuguese Roma through X-chromosomal markers.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that a sex-biased admixture with Europeans is probably associated with the founding of the Portuguese Gypsies, underlining the importance of using combined information from the X chromosome and autosomes to dissect patterns of genetic diversity. Expand
Divergent patrilineal signals in three Roma populations.
TLDR
Y-chromosome distributions in three Roma collections residing in Belgrade, Vojvodina and Kosovo are reported for the first time and illustrate that the most notable difference among the three Roma populations is in their opposing distributions of haplogroups H and E. Expand

Mitochondrial DNA Variations in Russian and Belorussian Populations
TLDR
Data of this study support the proposed model of the origin of modern Eastern Slavs, which implies the admixture of ancient Slavonic tribes with pre-Slavonic populations of Eastern Europe, and should contribute to general studies of mitochondrial DNA variations in Europe. Expand
Classification of European mtDNAs from an analysis of three European populations.
TLDR
The conclusion that most haplogroups observed in Europe are Caucasoid-specific, and that at least some of them occur at varying frequencies in different Caucasoid populations, is supported. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variability in Poles and Russians.
TLDR
The classification of mitochondrial haplotypes revealed the presence of all major European haplogroups, which were characterized by similar patterns of distribution in Poles and Russians and an analysis of the distribution of the control region haplotypes did not reveal any specific combinations of unique mtDNA haplotypes. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in Bosnians and Slovenians
TLDR
The observed differentiation between Bosnian and Slovenian mtDNAs suggests that at least two different migration waves of the Slavs may have reached the Balkans in the early Middle Ages. Expand
Variability of the human mitochondrial DNA control region sequences in the Lithuanian population.
TLDR
DNA analysis revealed the presence of almost all European haplogroups (except X) in the Lithuanian sample, including those that expanded through Europe in the Palaeolithic and those whose expansion occurred during the Neolithic. Expand
Phylogeographic differentiation of mitochondrial DNA in Han Chinese.
TLDR
These and other features of the geographical distribution of the mtDNA haplogroups observed in the Han Chinese make an initial Paleolithic colonization from south to north plausible but would suggest subsequent migration events in China that mainly proceeded from north to south and east to west. Expand
Phylogenetic network for European mtDNA.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence in the coding region of mtDNA was determined from 121 Finns, by conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis and subsequent sequencing and by direct sequencing of the D loop, which allowed the compilation of unambiguous phylogenetic networks. Expand
mtDNA polymorphisms in five French groups: importance of regional sampling
TLDR
Although mtDNA analyses were able to identify a historically reported admixture event, it is pointed out here the high influence of the sampling procedure and representativeness over the migrations hypothesis and the importance of regional sampling for studies on the spread and/or origin of specific European haplogroups.

TLDR
The study unambiguously points to the common origins of the three Vlax groups and the recent nature of the population fissions, and provides preliminary evidence of limited genetic diversity in this young founder population. Expand
