  • Should I order an H subclade test?

    Just got my HVR2 results. In the database, there is only one match of HVR1+HVR2. That person's Subclade H5.

    My question is: if two people match on HVR1+HVR2, how likely is it that the H subclade will be the same?

    Generally, it is pretty likely that they will be the same.

    What is your mitosearch ID?

        Your case is a little tricky. 16304C, when observed on in haplogroup H, usually denotes haplogroup H5 but I wouldn't say it is definitive. I can't find anyone who has tested their complete mtDNA genome who has a full HVR match with you, so I am reluctant to draw a firm conclusion.

        If you curiousity is truly piqued, you probably should order the H subclade test (which tests several coding region polymorphisms). The test is not terribly expensive, and will probably tell you whether you are in H5, H5a, or some other H clade. I think the $89 would be a decent investment.
