In human mitochondrial genetics, Haplogroup C is a human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup.

Contents

Origin

Haplogroup C is believed to have arisen somewhere between the Caspian Sea and Lake Baikal some 60,000 years before present. It is a descendant of the haplogroup M.

Distribution

Haplogroup C is found in Northeast Asia[2] (including Siberia). Haplogroup C is one of five mtDNA haplogroups found in the indigenous peoples of the Americas[2], the others being A, B, D, and X. The sublades C1b, C1c, C1d, and C4c are found in the first people of the Americas. C1 is the most common.
