African mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups are divided into seven macro‐haplogroups (L0′1′2′3′4′5′6), while the rest of the world's lineages are classified as subgroups of macro‐haplogroups M, N and R. The most common approach to characterizing mtDNA variation is the sequencing of hypervariable segments I and II of the non‐coding control region of the molecule. Given the higher mutation rate within the control region compared with the coding regions of the molecule, recurrent mutations in… Expand
Development of Multiple Assays using 46 SNPs for Comprehensive mtDNA Haplogrouping and Application to Highly Degraded DNA
TLDR
It is concluded that the present systems are powerful screening tools for major haplogroups of mtDNA in addition to the prevalent subhaplogroups in the Japanese population and that these systems are capable of analyzing highly degraded DNA samples in forensic studies. Expand
Multiplex genotyping system for efficient inference of matrilineal genetic ancestry with continental resolution
TLDR
An efficient and sensitive multiplex genotyping system for bio-geographic ancestry inference from mtDNA that provides resolution on the continental level is introduced and can be applied in forensics, to aid tracing unknown suspects, as well as in population studies, genealogy and personal ancestry testing.

A single multiplex SNaPshot reaction of 42 SNPs to classify admixture populations into mitochondrial DNA haplogroups
TLDR
It is concluded that it is possible to build and genotype more than 40 mtDNA SNPs in a single multiplex PCR and SNaPshot reaction, with sensitivity and reliability, resolving haplogroup classification in admixture populations. Expand
Developmental validation of mitochondrial DNA genotyping assays for adept matrilineal inference of biogeographic ancestry at a continental level.
TLDR
With this validated tool, it is now possible to determine the matrilineal biogeographic origin of unknown individuals on the level of continental resolution from forensic DNA samples to provide investigative leads in criminal and missing person cases where autosomal STR profiling is uninformative.

Genetic analysis of 15 mtDNA SNP loci in Chinese Yi ethnic group using SNaPshot minisequencing.
TLDR
The analysis of the 15 selected SNPs increases considerably the discrimination power of mtDNA, and the SNaPshot minisequencing method could quickly detect mtDNA SNPs, and is economical and sensitive. Expand
Rapid screening for Native American mitochondrial and Y-chromosome haplogroups detection in routine DNA analysis.
TLDR
The new working-flow here proposed facilitates and speeds-up the screening process that may preclude a detailed sequencing analysis of particular samples, or for further molecular epidemiological investigations in which continental origin influences might be relevant. Expand
A one step multiplex PCR assay for rapid screening of East Asian mtDNA haplogroups on forensic samples.
TLDR
A multiplex mutagenically separated (MS) polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system was developed for simultaneous rapid detection of 14 coding region SNPs and one deletion motif representing common mtDNA haplogroups of East Asia. Expand
Ancient substructure in early mtDNA lineages of southern Africa.
TLDR
The phylogeny of the basal haplogroups L0d and L0k is updated with 500 full mtDNA genome sequences from 45 southern African Khoisan and Bantu-speaking populations to find previously unreported subhaplogroups and greatly extend the amount of variation and time-depth of most of the known subhaPLogroups.

MtDNA control region variation affirms diversity and deep sub-structure in populations from southern Africa
TLDR
New insights are presented into the multifaceted demographic history that shaped the existing genetic landscape of the Khoe-San and Coloured populations of southern Africa. Expand
A single multiplex PCR and SNaPshot minisequencing reaction of 42 SNPs to classify admixture populations into mitochondrial DNA haplogroups.
TLDR
It is concluded that it is possible to build and genotype more than forty mtDNA SNPs in a single multiplex PCR and SNaPshot reaction, with sensitivity and reliability, resolving haplogroup classification in admixture populations. Expand

Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in Khoisan populations from Southern Africa
TLDR
Mitochondrial DNA restriction fragment length polymorphisms were investigated in 95 individuals, suggesting that the San and Nama have evolved along separate lineages, with little gene flow between them, following their proposed separation from a common Khoisan ancestor. Expand
The structure of human mitochondrial DNA variation
TLDR
Tests of the selective neutrality of mtDNA variation indicate a departure in the direction consistent with purifying selection, but this departure is more likely due to the rapid growth of the human population and the geographic heterogeneity of the variation. Expand
