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.
