mtDNA Haplogroup U8 Website- Background



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.
Ian Logan's Haplogroup U8 list of GenBank submissions and trees:  See tree and list.
Of course, there is much information on your FTDNA personal page. Start with the Understanding Results: mtDNA.
