  • Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup data provide valuable information for inferring patterns of variation and population structure of maternal lineages. In this study, we analyzed the distribution of mtDNA haplogroup variation using a 20-plex SNaPshot assay for determination of the major East Asian haplogroups to evaluate the possible genetic structure and differentiation from 708 unrelated individuals residing in six major provinces in Korea. The most common mtDNA haplogroups were found to be… CONTINUE READING
