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

Origin

A descendant of the macro-haplogroup R, Haplogroup JT is the ancestral haplogroup to mitochondrial haplogroups J and T.

It was extremely common among ancient Etruscans[2]

Distribution

Subclades

Tree

This phylogenetic tree of haplogroup JT subclades is based on the paper by Mannis van Oven and Manfred Kayser Updated comprehensive phylogenetic tree of global human mitochondrial DNA variation[1] and subsequent published research.
