I've posted an unzipped (6 MB) version of their mtDNA file at
https://www.box.com/s/90bc49c49833a93a2fd4 for those who might have issues
with the decompression.
I'm a little skeptical of the way they are reporting the calls; as I think
Bonnie mentioned in the other thread, they seem to be only posting the
results as 1 or 0, which is OK if there is full coverage of all the sites
and no ambiguous results, but typically there are some sites that just
don't have any mapped reads and it is essentially a no-call...presumably
these would be reported as 0; I don't know how they would report
heteroplasmies. In principle I could look at the actual mapped data or run
my own variant call runs (as I've been doing with chrY), but that is deeper
than I want to delve into this at present.
I took a quick look at my maternal haplogroup, H3. For what it's worth, I
found 17 samples with the defining T6776C mutation (8 British samples (~8%
of all the GBR samples), 2 Finish, 1 Spanish, 4 Utah, and 2 Tuscan)
