Welcome to Ancient mtDNA database!
This is the place where you can find an updated list of the published mitochondrial sequences coming from the ancient DNA samples (aDNA). The main interest of our database lies in the anatomically modern Homo sapiens samples, ranging from the late Paleolithic to roughly Iron Age times, focusing on an Euroasian geographical area. We provide both the mtDNA sequences (in FASTA format), and the metadata for the samples (ID, date, geolocation, site, culture, mtDNA haplogroup, etc.), available to download in a comma-separated (CSV) text file.
- Search and download the database immediately.
- Display the selected samples on an interactive map.
- Read through the database documentation, FAQs or paper.
- Take a look at the list of references to studies from which samples in AmtDB come from.
- Check the links to other interesting (ancient) mtDNA tools and databases.
- Contact the authors if you have any more questions or want your samples to be included in AmtDB!
- Check AmtDB in bio.tools and omictools.com
