mtDNA – Migration Maps

The mtDNA - Migration Maps help you visualize your direct maternal ancestors' historic and anthropological migrations. It shows general migration paths for the major haplogroups. Please note that the lines and arrows on this map are not specific to any [...]

mtDNA (Maternal Lineage) Tests

Your direct maternal lineage is the line that follows your mother’s maternal ancestry. This line consists entirely of women, even though both men and women have their mother’s mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). This means that fathers do not pass on their mtDNA to [...]

How common is mtDNA heteroplasmy?

All mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) mutations go through a state of heteroplasmy. The frequency of heteroplasmy is then equal to or greater than mtDNA mutation rates. Note that population geneticists usually calculate mutation rates using those persons with the descendant genome.

How is mtDNA heteroplasmy inherited?

In each generation, it is possible for the child to inherit the heteroplasmic genome, only the ancestral genome, or only the descendant genome. For each generation, if the mother has a heteroplasmy, each of her children will experience any one [...]
