  • Any fun things to do with mtDNA?

    There's all sorts of interesting things to do with autosomal, but what can be done with mtDNA? It was the other little things that helped me understand the autosomal better and I'm hoping it's the same for the mt.

    Here's what I found so far:

    Look up references to diseases:
    http://www.mitomap.org/MITOMAP and goto the mtDNA Mutations with Reports of Disease-Associations section. There's much there I have yet to investigate

    Verify FTDNA's haplogroup designation:

    Read about you haplogroup at wikipedia:

    For example I'm H5a1 and a famous Danish princess who was Polish was H5a.

    Add your MtDNA to Genbank and view the database:

      Like most people, I am intrigued by the potential of using DNA for prediction of diseases and for advancing the treatment of them. But there are some many views about where this is all headed ! I noticed this a few days ago, for what it's worth.
