In human mitochondrial genetics, Haplogroup C is a human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroup.

Additional recommended knowledge

Haplogroup C is believed to have arisen in Asia some 60,000 years before present. It is a descendant of the haplogroup M.

Haplogroup C is found in Northeast Asia[1] (including Siberia) and is also one of five haplogroups found in the indigenous peoples of the Americas[1], the others being A, B, D, and X.

In his popular book The Seven Daughters of Eve, Bryan Sykes named the originator of this mtDNA haplogroup Chochmingwu.
