MtDNA haplogroup projects

From ISOGG Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

An mtDNA haplogroup project collects and collates mitochondrial DNA results from a specific haplogroup. There are also numerous projects for the various subclades within the major haplogroups. Membership of subclade projects is usually restricted to those who have taken a test that sequences the full mitochondrial genome (scientifically called the mtGenome). This is at times called the mtDNAFullSequence, the Mega Test, or the full mitochondrial sequence (FMS) test. All the large haplogroup projects are hosted by Family Tree DNA. Some haplogroup projects restrict membership to those who have tested at Family Tree DNA. Other projects have external website facilities where they are able to display results from other testing companies.

After you join an mtDNA haplogroup project, you should check a special box for that haplogroup on your FTDNA personal page. This will allow the project administrator to have access to your mutations list in case you have any questions. The admin might also be able to provide a more detailed subclade assignment than that provided by Family Tree DNA, based on the up-to-date mtDNA tree published on Phylotree. Some mtDNA haplogroup project admins will provide a detailed explanation of your full sequence mtDNA results. To allow project admins access to your mutations list select My Account, then Results Display Settings, then Under Show My mtDNA Coding Region Mutations to Administrators of these Projects select Yes for the project you have joined, then click SAVE. Alternatively you can follow the instructions in this blog post entitled Your privacy and showing your mtDNA coding region mutations.

For instructions on joining projects see the ISOGG Wiki article How to join an FTDNA project.

Joining projects

Genographic Project participants can transfer their results to the FTDNA database in order to join the relevant haplogroup project. Those who have tested with FTDNA affiliates such as AfricanDNA, DNA Worldwide and iGENEA can also benefit from joining FTDNA haplogroup projects.
