Concept for estimating mitochondrial DNA haplogroups using a maximum likelihood approach (EMMA)☆

PMCID: 3819997
PMID: 23948335
DOI: 10.1016/j.fsigen.2013.07.005

[…] ed in Phylotree not only facilitate manual haplogroup assignment, but they also serve as the basis for a number of software applications that perform the task (e.g. MitoTool , HmtDB , HaploGrep , and mtDNAoffice ). To date, however, none of the available automated solutions provide reliable and unbiased haplogroup estimates, especially in the case of partial mtDNA sequences . The major limitation […]
