This track shows the alignment of a complete Neandertal mitochondrial sequence to a modern human mitochondrial sequence.

Note: the mitochondrion used as the genome browser reference sequence "chrM" in hg18 and hg19 is NC_001807, which has been deprecated. Future human genome browsers will use the revised Cambridge Reference Sequence (rCRS) NC_012920.

Display Conventions and Configuration

This track follows the display conventions for PSL alignment tracks. Mismatching bases are highlighted as described here. Several types of alignment gap may also be colored; for more information, click here.


DNA was extracted from a 38,000-year-old bone and sequenced using methods described in Green, et al. The Neandertal mitochondrial sequence (NC_011137) was downloaded from GenBank and aligned to chrM (NC_001807) using BLAT.
