Haplogroup HV (mtDNA)

Haplogroup HV
Time of origin 20000 years before present
Place of origin Western Eurasia
Ancestral haplogroup pre-HV
Descendant haplogroups H, V
Defining mutations 7028

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

Haplogroup HV is believed to have expanded throughout Europe 20,000 years before present, before the advent of farming in Europe. Today, it is most common in Western Europe (and descendant populations).

Haplogroup HV derives from the Haplogroup pre-HV (which in turn derives from haplogroup R). HV is also the ancestral haplogroup to Haplogroup H and Haplogroup V.
