hi

its been established that you can trace mtdna evolution through
maternal line etc....and this is the way that ethnic groups and the out
of africa genetic analysis is based and other subpopulation
classifications...now, what would the mtdna profile of a child
whose mother is chinese and father african, for example? would
the child have the mother's mtdna profile? and if so what
implications does this have for the studies done so far on mtdna
inheritance?

cheers
