    I did not understood too much of it.

    There doesn't seem to be anything too surprising here, does there? They're claiming that the mtDna in Transylvania is more similar to that of central European countries like Hungary perhaps, and the rest of the country's mtDna is more similar to that of Balkan countries.

    Relu Cocos et al:
    Genetic affinities among the historical provinces of Romania and Central Europe as revealed by an mtDNA analysis

    "Background

    As a major crossroads between Asia and Europe, Romania has experienced continuous migration and invasion episodes. The precise routes may have been shaped by the topology of the territory and had diverse impacts on the genetic structure of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) in historical Romanian provinces. We studied 714 Romanians from all historical provinces, Wallachia, Dobrudja, Moldavia, and Transylvania, by analyzing the mtDNA control region and coding markers to encompass the complete landscape of mtDNA haplogroups.

    Results

    We observed a homogenous distribution of the majority of haplogroups among the Romanian provinces and a clear association with the European populations. A principal component analysis and multidimensional scaling analysis supported the genetic similarity of the Wallachia, Moldavia, and Dobrudja groups with the Balkans, while the Transylvania population was closely related to Central European groups. These findings could be explained by the topology of the Romanian territory, where the Carpathian Arch played an important role in migration patterns. Signals of Asian maternal lineages were observed in all Romanian historical provinces, indicating gene flow along the migration routes through East Asia and Europe.

    Conclusions

    Our current findings based on the mtDNA analysis of populations in historical provinces of Romania suggest similarity between populations in Transylvania and Central Europe, supported both by the observed clines in haplogroup frequencies for several European and Asian maternal lineages and MDS analyses."

    Females from Moldavia plains are considered by the males from Romania as most beautiful.
    And they are. I guess is their Asian genes :) .
    Besides, Wallachia turned out to have 43% H and summed with HV and HV0 is over 45%.
    Sweden and Denmark also got a lower concentration of H ,as Moldavia and Dobruja have.
    Moldavia have a 11% J which is clearly European.
    Or it came to Europe from Caucasus, more than 10.000 years ago.
    L is not "African" because is North African .

    On my National Genographic results it mentions 'Moldova' having 7% of the population being H1c. I don't know if any further study has revealed any 'deeper' clades

    "In an original dataset of 407 Romanian sequences (Turchi C. et al, in press), collected from the general population belonging to four major historical regions Moldavia, Transylvania, Wallachia and Dobruja, we observed 277 (68%) distinct haplotypes of which 220 (79%) were unique. The most common haplotype 16519C, 263G, 315.1C, (haplogroup R0) was shared by twenty-five individuals (6%), while the second most common haplotype 16126C, 16189A, 16223T, 16278T, 16519C, 73G, 195C, 263G, 315.1C (haplogroup X2e1b) was shared by ten individuals (4%)."

    Yes Moldova are slightly more Slavic than South Romanians say. Interesting to see the frequency between North and South Romania here
