Abstract: Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence variation and maternal inheritance are valuable tools in assessing ancestry of different human populations and for clinical practice. A new study (Wei et al., 2019) reports that the fate of new mtDNA variants in the female germline is non-random as they report functional selection and matching to nuclear ancestry to shape human mtDNA variation.
