    Just found an article on the basis of the dissertation: Rabab Khairat et al., First insights into the metagenome of Egyptian mummies using next-generation sequencing, Journal of Applied Genetics, August 2013, Volume 54, Issue 3, pp 309-325. http://link.springer.com/article/10....353-013-0145-1

    My mtFullSequence at FTDNA came back yesterday and confirmed 23andMe's assignment of I2. I wonder how exactly I'm related to that mummy. The mtDNA I project will probably come along and assign me to a further subclade at some point.

    I've asked for a report on my FASTA file by Dr. Ann Turner. It'll be interesting to see how that plays out.

    I don't have any matches closer than a GD of 2, which I gather likely puts the common ancestor a long way back. Full spectrum (all three regions) matches seem to mostly be in the British Isles, though there's a Norwegian and a German. I suppose commonality might even be from IE speakers before they split.

    Also, it appears my mtDNA actually does say GATTACA in one place.

    My dad is two steps from the Egyptian at FGS, what is the FTDNA kit# or surname on yours? Curious how far you are from him. I'm fairly close to a bunch of Norwegians, don't recall Swedes were in there.

    FTDNA kit 367588, surname Karlsson. Sounds like an interesting comparison to make, do let me know if you find anything.

    Word from the project admin:

    Reviewing your results, I see that your most distinctive mutations are T8119C and G8557A. You are one of seven project members with one or both of these markers, and all of you belong to a new subclade of I2 that has not yet been officially identified. I anticipate that this subclade will be added to the next update of the mtDNA tree. I don't know when this update will take place, but I hope it will be sometime in 2015.

    I guess your kit is more than the maximum steps away... I do see some Norwegians and at least 1 Swede from a quick scan of the results. No such Karlsson anywhere.

    Sorry, I goofed a bit (probably too little caffeine). Karlsson is my surname, but that's likely not what's showing in the project's listing - it lists my maternal grandmother whose surname was Olsfelt. But presumably you checked for the kit number also.
