- •A high-quality mtDNA control region dataset from 407 Romanian samples were generated.
- •The Romanian gene pool is mainly composed of West Eurasian lineages.
- •The variations show a high molecular diversity and low random match probability.
- •This dataset provides a useful forensic database in routine forensic mtDNA analysis.
