Homework 6 - mtDNA haplotypes

Please determine the haplogroup for 3 different H. sapiens HVS1 mtDNA sequences using the following tools (in order):

  1. NCBI nucleotide database
  2. mtDNAProfiler --> mtDNA nomenclature
  3. Genographic Project "Haplogroup Prediction Tool"
  4. Genographic Project "Atlas of Human Journey"

Write a brief summary of your efforts, including some comments on whether the predicted haplogroup is what you expected based on the source of the mtDNA. Please include accession numbers for the mtDNA sequences you used, as well a list of how each sequence differed from the rCRS.

Feel free to email with any questions.

Due 3/29/12, in class.
