Genetic studies have emphasized the contrast between North African and sub‐Saharan populations, but the particular affinities of the North African mtDNA pool to that of Europe, the Near East, and sub‐Saharan Africa have not previously been investigated. We have analysed 268 mtDNA control‐region sequences from various Northwest African populations including several Senegalese groups and compared these with the mtDNA database. We have identified a few mitochondrial motifs that are geographically… Expand
