Seq Analysis Help
A reference for analyzing your mtDNA data, interpreting the results you receive, and citing the software in your paper.
Only one sequence can be analyzed per request. Use one of the following formats:
The raw DNA sequence. Nothing else.
- Letters can be upper or lower case
- IUPAC partial information characters
- Placeholder position
MITOMASTER has been designed to extend its analytical capabilities to other species, though only human DNA can be analyzed at present. If you would like for the Seq Analysis to be expanded to another species and are willing to provide some information regarding the reference sequence commonly used for that species and any applicable conventions that may be in place, then please contact Marty Brandon
Interpretation of Results
Human allele frequency values are calculated from a set of sequences in which Caucasian haplogroups are highly over-represented. For this reason you should look more closely at the frequency within a haplogroup.
