Please cite the mtDNA tree as follows:
Here we provide a phylogenetic tree of global human mitochondrial DNA variation, based on both coding- and control-region mutations, and including haplogroup nomenclature. This mtDNA tree is meant as a framework for evolutionary anthropologists, medical geneticists, genealogists and forensic geneticists. The tree is updated regularly to incorporate information from novel mitogenome sequences.
