Seq Analysis Help

A reference for analyzing your mtDNA data, interpreting the results you receive, and citing the software in your paper.



Data Format

Only one sequence can be analyzed per request. Use one of the following formats:

Full Sequence

The raw DNA sequence. Nothing else.

Valid Symbols:
Symbol Meaning
- deletion
N unknown residue
  • Letters can be upper or lower case
  • IUPAC partial information characters
  • Placeholder position

Variants Only


MITOMASTER has been designed to extend its analytical capabilities to other species, though only human DNA can be analyzed at present. If you would like for the Seq Analysis to be expanded to another species and are willing to provide some information regarding the reference sequence commonly used for that species and any applicable conventions that may be in place, then please contact Marty Brandon.

Reference Sequence

Interpretation of Results


Human allele frequency values are calculated from a set of sequences in which Caucasian haplogroups are highly over-represented. For this reason you should look more closely at the frequency within a haplogroup.
