Donating your results to a study is an opportunity to help the scientific community advance research into our shared maternal origins. Contributing your results can also hold advantages for you, especially if you are interested in your haplogroup branch assignment. The more data the researchers have access to, the more likely they are to find more specific haplogroup branches that apply to you, and the more they can discover and learn about a haplogroup’s history and origins.

Thousands of Family Tree DNA customers have tested their Mitochondrial DNA Full Genomic Sequence. Their results are an important addition to the results collected directly by researchers. After publication, we can incorporate the new discoveries, provide better haplogroup descriptions, and provide refined haplogroup assignments to our customers, including you.

Ethics Alert: Only the actual person tested may contribute their DNA test results to scientific research.
