    H18

    Hello everyone.
    anyone?
    This is an old thread but just about all I can find about H18 besides academic papers. I found out I have this mtDNA type through 23 and Me. This paper about haplogroup H in Caucasus and Western Asia found six H18 individuals in the middle east: 5 in the Arabian peninsula, 1 in Syria, out of initial 6199 samples in region narrowed it to just 1219 H individuals. 1 of 28 hg H Syrians were H18. 5 of 52 hg H samples in Arabian peninsula were H18, a notably higher incidence overall compared to the rest of the region. The H18 group is shown as an orange band on a chart in the paper.

    I am not allowed to post links, but anyone can google and find this free paper from 2006. Origin and Expansion of Haplogroup H, the Dominant Human Mitochondrial DNA Lineage in West Eurasia: The Near Eastern and Caucasian Perspective Free
    "A total of 6,199 samples were screened for the absence of 7025 AluI restriction site (induced by a T to C transition at np 7028), indicative of hg H. Of these, 1,219 fell to hg H and 545 samples were involved to detailed clustering. "

    This paper is Roostalu (et al) 2006 https://academic.oup.com/mbe/article/24/2/436/1148196

    Technology has advanced and terminology also, with a major revision in 2012 from Behar http://www.sciencedirect.com/science...02929712001462
    Look towards the bottom for the link to Supplement in which you will find the date of formation of H18 around page 103.

    Academic articles can be hard work, but rewarding with these dates and also some good maps sometimes.
    Google Scholar has some handy features.
    For example, you could locate that earlier Roostalu paper and then look for papers that refer to it (under "cited") and then filter for recent dates to find the latest work.

    H18 is certainly rare. Good luck.
