Figure 2

Origin of samples and mitochondrial haplogroup distribution of Southeast Asian populations. Although most of the study participants originated from Karen State (red), a broad sample spectrum from nearly all divisions and states of Myanmar (a) was included in this study. b shows the haplogroup distributions of populations from Myanmar and four other Southeast Asian regions. In the white insert box the haplogroup heterogeneity of two ethnic groups of Myanmar is illustrated. The hatched area in the map surrounding the border between Myanmar and Thailand shows the main population area of the Karen people. The Bamar represent the largest ethnic group (68%) in Myanmar. The size of the pie diagrams corresponds to sample size.
