From: On the edge of Bantu expansions: mtDNA, Y chromosome and lactase persistence genetic variation in southwestern Angola

Figure 2

MtDNA haplogroup variation in southwestern Angola and other African populations. A) and B) Correspondence analysis plots based on haplogroup frequency profiles from several African populations (A) and different ethnolinguistic groups from Namibe (B). Percentages in parentheses indicate the total fraction of the genetic variation that was captured by each dimension. Geographic regions were defined as in Figure 1B. Populations from Mozambique and Zimbabwe were pooled into a single Southeast Africa group. Angola includes samples from Cabinda and Luanda. Namibe includes all groups sampled in this study. C) MtDNA haplogroup frequencies in the Namibe province and in other African population groups. D) MtDNA haplogroup frequencies in the four population groups sampled in the Namibe province. Haplogroup frequencies were broken down as in [25]. ANG = Angola (Luanda + Cabinda); WC = West-Central Africa; W = West Africa; E = East Africa; PYG = Pygmies; SAK = South Africa Khoe-San; SE = Southeast Africa; NAB = Namibe; KUV = Kuvale; OVI = Ovimbundu; NYA = Nyaneka-Nkhumbi; GANG = Ganguela.
