Objective: Environmental impacts, history as well as established cultural regulations, and many more other factors had shaped broadly diverse structure of human genetic patterns. A control region of human mtDNA has served as a good genetic determination marker in many fields such as evolutionary studies and forensic genetics. The allelic variations of mtDNA have been studied in many populations including Turkish populations. Previous studies in Turkish populations lacked large cohorts. In this study, non-coding hypervariable regions of human mitochondrial DNA with extended population of Turkish individuals from Aegean region have been investigated.
