Paper 2 - your halplogroup determination

A 3-5 page paper on your effort to determine your own haplogroup.

In Mapping Human History, Steve Olson describes how research on mtDNA reveals details of human origins and patterns of human migration.

In this project you will tell your version of this story. Provide some background to both the theoretical aspects of this topic, as well as the kind of questions it can address. Include also details of your own lab work, from DNA extraction and PCR, to DNA sequencing and sequence analysis.
