The mtDNA of Ötzi the Iceman: A New Subclade of Haplogroup K1

The mtDNA of Otzi, the Iceman discovered in the Alps, was recently re-analyzed. The results suggest that the previous mtDNA sequence was contaminated by a modern mtDNA source, and that the mtDNA belongs to a previously unidentified subclade of Haplogroup K1.  For more information, see Dienekes’ Anthropology Blog.
