In the proposed study, the mtDNA HVI and HVII region sequences (354 and 217 bp, respectively) of seven ancient samples collected from Cemialo Sırtı (Batman) excavation site in the southeastern of Anatolia were successfully obtained. The mtDNA HPG compositions of these ancient human samples were determined. The mtDNAhaplogroups of seven ancient individuals were assigned as H1z1, M1a, U2b1, H1a, HV, R2 and R6 and PhyloTreemt (http://www.phylotree.org/) was used for determination of the mtDNA haplogroups. Furthermore the mtDNA HVI - HVII region sequences of seven samples were comparatively analyzed with some modern human populations and various Neolithic populations that were retrieved from databases from Northern Syria (8000 BC), Central Europe (6000-1550 BC)
and Southern Paris (5000-4000 BC), including the Sagalassos population which is an ancient Byzantium population (11th–13th century Common Era (CE)) near from Ağlasun/Burdur in the Southwestern Anatolia. This study is the first study where the questions about the human ancient DNA (aDNA) are addressed in the dedicated ancient DNA laboratory of Middle East Technical University (METU), Ankara, Turkey.

Do this presence of Indian mtDNA means that Indians started to arrive in Taron earlier than was presumed?
However, only in the canton of Taron did the efforts to protect the pagan temples grow into a full-scale, though self-consciously hopeless, insurrection. Most of the rebel force was put up by the Armenian-Indian theocratic principality or, more precisely, a warrior temple association founded by the Indian tribes who migrated to Armenia some two centuries earlier, presumably, during the reign of King Tiridates I (63-88 CE).
Tiridates I had ordered them to settle in this strategically important area and supply his army with trained cavalry and infantry, which they did loyally. By the fourth century these Indians had grown to a population of up to 100,000, and they had already been partially assimilated into the Armenian society:
