Distribution patterns of postmortem damage in human mitochondrial DNA

American Journal of Human Genetics

Dec 19, 2002

M Thomas P GilbertAlan Cooper

Abstract

The distribution of postmortem damage in mitochondrial DNA retrieved from 37 ancient human DNA samples was analyzed by cloning and was compared with a selection of published animal data. A relative rate of damage (rho(v)) was calculated for nucleotide positions within the human hypervar...read more
