We have developed a computer system, MITOMASTER, to make analysis of human mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequences efficient, accurate, and easily available. From imported sequences, the system identifies nucleotide variants, determines the haplogroup, rules out possible pseudogene contamination, identifies novel DNA sequence variants, and evaluates the potential biological significance of each variant. This system should be beneficial for mtDNA analyses of biomedical physicians and investigators, population biologists and forensic scientists. MITOMASTER can be accessed at
