Note: lifted from hg18
This track shows the alignment of a complete Neandertal mitochondrial
sequence to a modern human mitochondrial sequence.
Note: the mitochondrion used as the genome browser reference sequence
"chrM" in hg18 and hg19 is
NC_001807, which has been deprecated.
Future human genome browsers will use the revised Cambridge Reference
Sequence (rCRS) NC_012920.

DNA was extracted from a 38,000-year-old bone and sequenced using
methods described in Green, et al.
The Neandertal mitochondrial sequence
(NC_011137) was downloaded
from GenBank and aligned to chrM
(NC_001807) using BLAT.
