A human mitochondrial genome database

A compendium of polymorphisms and mutations in human mitochondrial DNA
MITOMAP reports published data on human mitochondrial DNA variation. If you would like to add a paper and its data into MITOMAP, please email a pdf to We appreciate your help.
Science Cover

2020 Update #3: On Sept 1, 2020 we added 1,615 new full-length (FL) and 348 new control region (CR) GenBank sequences to our database. We removed 1,133 FL duplicate cell line sequences. This brings our total number of FL sequences to 51,673, and the number of CR sequences to 74,660. Our SNVs now total 19,227. We update our GenBank sequences three times per year. Hand curation of variants and references continues weekly. See the GenBank Frequency Info page for details about our current sequence sets.

PICK We have starred our user Favorites for seeking information on specific variants and for understanding the contents of our database.
