  • Full mtDNA mutation-tree

    Inspired by Felix thread found here: http://forums.familytreedna.com/showthread.php?t=35135

    I spent some time investigating if there could there be an alternative view of the mtDNA Haplogroup and subclade tree using only the genetic distance from the hypothetical mtDNA root: mtEVE.

    The entire tree is based on a 3-column table:
    Clade name; Parent clade; Genetic distance

    The table is based on mtDNA tree Build 16 (19 Feb 2014) found here: http://www.phylotree.org/

    Here you may download the source data table file:

    I have created 2 different views using the same logic, one view is vertically normalized:
    http://artificial.se/DNA/mtDNAfull.html
    http://artificial.se/DNA/mtDNAfull_norm.html

    It is important to stress the fact that the X-axis does not represent a timeline.

    Screenshots of the 2 different views,
    Top aligned:



    Vertically normalized:



    Details:
    Code:
    ♦ = mutation
    
    Any branch from parent is automatically 1 mutation, additional mutations is represented by ♦.
    Have fun!
