Mitochondrial DNA variability in two Slavonic‐speaking populations of the northwestern Balkan peninsula, Bosnians (N = 144) and Slovenians (N = 104), was studied by hypervariable segments I and II (HVS I and II) sequencing and restriction fragment‐length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis of the mtDNA coding region. The majority of the mtDNA detected in Southern Slavonic populations falls into the common West Eurasian mitochondrial haplogroups (e.g., H, pre‐V, J, T, U, K, I, W, and X). About 2% of… 
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.
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.
On the origin of Mongoloid component in the mitochondrial gene pool of Slavs
TLDR
It was demonstrated that in terms of their structure, mitochondrial gene pools of Czechs and other Slavic populations were practically indistinguishable, and the highest frequency of Mongoloid component was detected in the mitochondrial gene pool of Russian populations from the Russian North and the Northwestern region of Russia.
Mitochondrial DNA perspective of Serbian genetic diversity.
TLDR
Serbian population was characterized as an important link between easternmost and westernmost south-Slavic populations due to the observed lack of genetic differentiation with all other south- Slovic populations and its geographical positioning within the Balkan Peninsula.
Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in the Polish Roma
TLDR
Results of complete mtDNA sequencing clearly indicate that the Romani M*‐lineage belongs to the Indian‐specific haplogroup M5, which is characterized by three transitions in the coding region, at sites 12477, 3921 and 709.
Genetic Heritage of the Balto-Slavic Speaking Populations: A Synthesis of Autosomal, Mitochondrial and Y-Chromosomal Data
TLDR
The data suggest that genetic diversity of the present-day Slavs was predominantly shaped in situ, and a pattern of distribution of segments identical by descent between groups of East-West and South Slavs suggests shared ancestry or a modest gene flow between those two groups, which might derive from the historic spread of Slavic people.
Mitochondrial DNA Portrait of Latvians: Towards the Understanding of the Genetic Structure of Baltic‐Speaking Populations
TLDR
The results of the mtDNA analysis show that the previously described sharp difference between the Y‐chromosomal hg N3 distribution in the paternally inherited gene pool of Baltic‐speaking populations and of other European Indo‐European speakers does not have a corresponding maternal counterpart.
MtDNA variation in three main ethnic groups in Tuzla Canton of Bosnia and Herzegovina
This study was based on the analysis of mtDNA polymorphisms in three ethnic groups of Tuzla Canton of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs). The main aim of this study was to analyze
Mitochondrial DNA variation in Jordanians and their genetic relationship to other Middle East populations
TLDR
Results are in agreement with an old human settlement in the Jordan region, however, in spite of the attested migratory spreads, genetically divergent populations, such as that of the Dead Sea, still exist in the area.
Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups in the Czech Population Compared to Other European Countries
TLDR
The results of this study reveal that the frequency of mtDNA haplogroups in the Czech population is similar to the frequencies obtained in other European countries, especially Poland, Germany, and Russia.

Mitochondrial DNA variability in Russians and Ukrainians: Implication to the origin of the Eastern Slavs
TLDR
It is concluded that the Slavonic migrations in early Middle Ages from their putative homeland in central Europe to the east of Europe were accompanied mostly by the same mtDNA types characteristic for the pre‐Slavonic populations of eastern Europe.
MtDNA haplogroups in the populations of Croatian Adriatic Islands.
TLDR
As the settlements on the islands were formed trough several immigratory episodes of genetically distant populations, this analysis showed greater genetic diversity than expected at the level of particular settlements.
A signal, from human mtDNA, of postglacial recolonization in Europe.
TLDR
The present study shows that the dissection of mtDNA variation into small and well-defined evolutionary units is an essential step in the identification of spatial frequency patterns, and promises to be an efficient strategy for inferring features of human prehistory.
From Asia to Europe: mitochondrial DNA sequence variability in Bulgarians and Turks
TLDR
Mean pairwise differences suggest that a demographic expansion occurred sequentially in the Middle East, through Turkey, to the rest of Europe (Bulgaria included), and would correspond to the arrival of anatomically modern humans in Europe.
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.
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.
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.
Evidence for mtDNA Admixture between the Finns and the Saami
TLDR
The high frequency of certain mtDNA haplotypes considered to be Saami specific in the Finnish population suggests a genetic admixture, which appears to be more pronounced in northern Finland.
Diversity of mtDNA lineages in Portugal: not a genetic edge of European variation
TLDR
It is hypothesised that the recent Black African slave trade could have been the mediator of most of the L sequence inputs, while the population movement associated with the Muslim rule of Iberia has predominantly introduced U6 lineages.
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.
