mtDNA Haplogroup U8 Website- Background



U with 16146G & 16342C, U with 16189C & 16234T, U with 16209C & 16342C, U8, U8a, U8a1, U8b, U8b'K


Project created July 15, 2009, with William R. Hurst as group administrator.
(Various scientific articles and tree with U8 will be added below. Check back often.)
Gonzales, et al., The mitochondrial lineage U8a reveals a Paleolithic settlement in the Basque country: See article.
See Build 15, then the U page under the PhyloTree.

See Ron Scott's mtDNA page for "Hg U Origins" and when there are any,U8 GenBank FGS submissions: See mtDNAPage.
Wikipedia Haplogroup U article: See article.
