Human mitochondrial DNA is widely used as tool in many fields including evolutionary anthropology and population history, medical genetics, genetic genealogy, and forensic science. Many applications require detailed knowledge about the phylogenetic relationship of mtDNA variants. Although the phylogenetic resolution of global human mtDNA diversity has greatly improved as a result of increasing sequencing efforts of complete mtDNA genomes, an updated overall mtDNA tree is currently not available… 

DomeTree: a canonical toolkit for mitochondrial DNA analyses in domesticated animals

This work provides the most up‐to‐date mtDNA phylogeny and a standardized hierarchical haplogroup nomenclature system for domesticated cattle, dogs, goats, horses, pigs, sheep, yaks and chickens and offers the software MitoToolPy to facilitate the mtDNA data analyses.

Maternal ancestry and population history from whole mitochondrial genomes

In the era of whole nuclear genome sequencing, mitochondrial genomes are continuing to be informative as a unique tool for the assessment of female-specific aspects of the demographic history of human populations.

Entire Mitochondrial DNA Sequencing on Massively Parallel Sequencing for the Korean Population

The complete mtGenome data for 186 Koreans, obtained using Ion Torrent Personal Genome Machine (PGM) technology and retrieved from rather common mtDNA haplogroups based on the control region sequence, showed that 24 haplog groups, determined with hypervariable regions only, branched into 47 subhaplogroups, and point heteroplasmy was more frequent in the coding regions.

Revision of the mtDNA tree and corresponding haplogroup nomenclature.

An updated mtDNA phylogeny is provided with revised haplogroup nomenclature containing the 25 sequences by Zhao et al. plus an additional 53 sequences that are relevant for the tree topology.

Germline selection shapes human mitochondrial DNA diversity

The characteristics of mtDNA in the human population are shaped by selective forces acting on heteroplasmy within the female germ line and are influenced by the nuclear genetic background, as indicated by population genetic evidence that selection shapes the evolving mtDNA phylogeny.



Updating the East Asian mtDNA phylogeny: a prerequisite for the identification of pathogenic mutations.

A reassessment of the mtDNA data from a series of disease studies testified to the usefulness of such a refined mtDNA tree in evaluating the pathogenicity of mtDNA mutations and a guideline based on the phylogenetic knowledge as proposed here could help avoiding similar problems in the future.

Phylogeny of east Asian mitochondrial DNA lineages inferred from complete sequences.

This East Asian mtDNA phylogeny can henceforth serve as a solid basis for phylogeographic analyses of mtDNAs, as well as for studies of mitochondrial diseases in East and Southeast Asia.

An enhanced MITOMAP with a global mtDNA mutational phylogeny

The MITOMAP () data system for the human mitochondrial genome has been greatly enhanced by the addition of a navigable mutational mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) phylogenetic tree of ∼3000 mtDNA coding

Low "penetrance" of phylogenetic knowledge in mitochondrial disease studies.

Phylogenetic network for European mtDNA.

The nucleotide sequence in the coding region of mtDNA was determined from 121 Finns, by conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis and subsequent sequencing and by direct sequencing of the D loop, which allowed the compilation of unambiguous phylogenetic networks.

Harvesting the fruit of the human mtDNA tree.

New binary polymorphisms reshape and increase resolution of the human Y chromosomal haplogroup tree.

Major changes in the topology of the parsimony tree are described and names for new and rearranged lineages within the tree following the rules presented by the Y Chromosome Consortium in 2002 are provided.

Validation of microarray‐based resequencing of 93 worldwide mitochondrial genomes

A direct comparison of 93 worldwide mitochondrial genomes sequenced by both the MitoChip and dideoxy terminator sequencing revealed an average call rate of 99.48% and an accuracy of ≥99.98% for theMitoChip, achieving good performance by using in‐house software for the automated analysis of additional probes on the array that cover the most common haplotypes in the hypervariable regions (HVR).

The Phylogeny of the Four Pan-American MtDNA Haplogroups: Implications for Evolutionary and Disease Studies

A human entry and spread of the pan-American haplogroups into the Americas right after the peak of the Last Glacial Maximum is indicated and comfortably agrees with the undisputed ages of the earliest Paleoindians in South America.
