Fine Dissection of Human Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroup HV Lineages Reveals Paleolithic Signatures from European Glacial Refugia

I'll read this paper later. These papers are what is needed to find the origins of mtDNA haplogroups. We need mitogenomes. However with 316 HV*(xH, V) mitgenomes you can't determine the origins of HV*(xH, V). I don't why papers on modern mtDNA always go for the oldest possible origins. It gets annoying.

Their theory is possible, that's all I can say. 316 mitogenomes isn't enough to be conclusive. There's a mtDNA result from Mesolithic Sicily that is probably HV1.
