A human mitochondrial genome database

A compendium of polymorphisms and mutations in human mitochondrial DNA
MITOMAP reports published and unpublished data on human mitochondrial DNA variation. Most of the data is hand-curated and, due to the massive volume of sequencing data being produced world wide, there is always a backlog of papers and data to be added. If you would like to fast-track inclusion of a paper and its data into MITOMAP, please email a pdf to We appreciate your help. Thanks.
