2011 DNA DATA - MITOCHONDRIAL DNA (mtDNA)
The image to the right shows two Gel sheets with recovered DNA from a single sample of the Starchild Skull bone, and a single sample of bone from the adult human female skull (control skull) reportedly found with it. The images below show single read results from datasets obtained from the Starchild Skull gel sheet. BLAST matched the sequence to a fragment of human mtDNA as shown. For comparison, alignment of the corresponding gene segments of other haplogroups and species is shown as well.
