Transmission of human mtDNA heteroplasmy in the Genome of the Netherlands families: support for a variable-size bottleneck.

Although previous studies have documented a bottleneck in the transmission of mtDNA genomes from mothers to offspring, several aspects remain unclear, including the size and nature of the bottleneck. Here, we analyze the dynamics of mtDNA heteroplasmy transmission in the Genomes of the Netherlands (GoNL) data, which consists of complete mtDNA genome… CONTINUE READING
