Abstract

Mitochondrial DNA analysis is a very important tool for assessment of phylogenetic relationships, and it has initiated development on many scientific fields, in which forensics is highlighted. Patterns found through phylogenetic analysis of human mitochondrial DNA sequences have revealed a wealth of information in such disparate fields as human evolution, in which forensics plays a very important role. This paper describes cases of natural preserved mummies which analysis have gained to development of forensics and understandings of phylogeny. It also describes how Out of Africa theory has showed true. After all, it describes recent events in which forensics has the most important role for making justice and resolving crimes against humanity.
