Mitochondrial DNA Hypervariable Region I and II Sequence Polymorphism in the Dravidian Linguistic Group of India
Mitochondrial DNA is an important tool for studying maternal lineage that has been widely used in the study of human identification and population structure as well. In this study, HV I and HV II sequence polymorphism is studied in four important populations belonging to the Dravidian linguistic family of Karnataka, India. The information on some polymorphic autosomal STR loci is already available for these populations (1).
