Haplogroup N (mtDNA)
In human genetics, Haplogroup N is a human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup.
An enormous haplogroup spanning many continents, the macro-haplogroup N is a branch of the African haplogroup L3, and is believed to have originated in Africa some 60,000 to 80,000 years before present.
The two haplogroups M and N are believed to represent the initial migration by modern humans out of Africa. Haplogroup N is the ancestral haplogroup to almost all European and Oceanian haplogroups in addition to many Asian and Amerindian ones.
On an 18 November 2005 broadcast of the Today Show, during an interview with Dr. Spencer Wells, host Ann Curry was revealed to belong to Haplogroup N.
