List of mtDNA tools
- James Lick's mtHap utility A tool for checking and assigning mtDNA haplogroups on an individual basis. It provides a detailed assignment showing the SNP path and also gives a list of alternatives. The tool is usually updated within 24 hours of the release of each new Phylotree build. This is the most useful mtDNA tool for genetic genealogists.
- Haplofind The tool is described in: Vianello D, Sevini F, Castellani G, Laura L, Capri M, Franceschi C. Haplofind: A new method for high-throughput mtDNA haplogroup assignment. Human Mutations 2013 May 20. [Epub ahead of print]. This tool can be used for batch-processing mtDNA haplogroup assignments and will also analyse sequences for medically informative associations. It only accepts FASTA files.
- HaploGrep 2 An automated tool for determining haplogroups. The tool will accept VCF files from whole genome sequencing data. For details see the article by Weissensteiner et al (2016) on HaploGrep 2: mitochondrial haplogroup classification in the era of high-throughput sequencing

- mtDNA Profiler The tool is described in: Yang IS, Lee HY, Yang WI, Shin KJ. mtDNAprofiler: A Web Application for the Nomenclature and Comparison of Human Mitochondrial DNA Sequences. Journal of Forensic Science. 2013 May 17. [Epub ahead of print]
