Macaulay, Vincent, Richards, Martin B. and Sykes, Bryan (1999) Mitochondrial DNA recombination-no need to panic. Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 266 (1433). pp. 2037-2039. ISSN 0962-8452

Recombination has recently been invoked as an explanation for the large amount of homoplasy observed in a collection of complete or nearly complete human mitochondrial sequences. Here we show that some of the data on which this conclusion was based are likely to be unreliable and that if these data are excluded, the results are no longer significant.
