  • Sequence analysis reveals evidence of heteroplasmy in this sample and places this mitochondrial genome sequence securely within a previously identified aurochsen haplogroup (haplogroup P), thus providing novel insights into pre-domestic patterns of variation.

  • A contrasting picture is seen in Italy, where all ancient aurochsen mtDNA control region sequences to date have been assigned to macro-haplogroup T

    PLoS ONE Alerts: New Articles

  • However, the recent reporting of two novel, albeit rare, putative aurochs sequences (haplogroups Q and R) in modern animals sampled in Italy, together with the detection of a haplogroup P sequence in a modern taurine animal support at least some local adoption of wild aurochsen matrilines
