Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • We've been able to map the entire human genome and examine chunks of DNA, known as haplotypes, and what they tell us starkly challenges conventional wisdom.

    Jon Entine: Why Humans are Different -- Oy Vey!

  • SNPs that lie next to each other on a chromosome and are inherited together are called haplotypes; clusters of related haplotypes are called haplogroups.

    National Geographic News

  • An associated scientific team has produced a map charting the key DNA differences, also known as haplotypes, between varieties of cattle.

  • In that paper, the Bovine HapMap Consortium unveils a map that charts key DNA differences, called haplotypes, among the diverse branches of the bovine tree.

    GEN News Highlights

  • They call them haplogroups and haplotypes, which come back probabilities and percentages—and it works.

    The Snow Whale

  • Groups of related haplotypes are bunched together as haplogroups and haplogroups help geneticists track the geographic diversity of human populations over time.

    Shaking the Family Tree

  • Smolenyak explained the difference between Y-DNA and mtDNA and HVRs and CRS and haplotypes and a bunch of other genetic acronyms that I will introduce you to later, Dear Reader.

    Shaking the Family Tree

  • Comparing the mtDNA haplotypes found in the lampshade samples to “standard Cambridge Mitochondrial sequences,” it was ascertained that the “NCBI database… came back with a 0.0 e-value signifying a 100% probability that the cyt b sequence is human.”

    The Lampshade

  • He found that the Bushmen fell into the L0k and L0d mitochondrial mt haplotypes, among the deepest branching groups, about 150,000 years old.

    The $1,000 Genome

  • In New England, however, the distribution and abundance of native populations has declined dramatically and genetic data indicate that some haplotypes found historically may no longer be present.
