Today, I want to present the latest results of haplogroup U1a1. Haplogroup U1a1 got my attention a while ago, since we have already three Kurdish individuals with U1a1 I thought to give it another post.
Kurds with U1a1:
1x U1a1 (Zaza)
1x U1a1 (Sorani)
1x U1a1 with A16182C, A16183C, T16189C, T16249C (=U1a1) (Kurds from Georgia; Comas et al., 2000)
For the first time, we have the full mtDNA sequence of a Kurd (Sorani) with U1a1.
Of course, I compared the data of this Kurdish individual with other complete U1a1 mtDNA sequences. It turns out that he has the G9575A mutation, so he belongs to U1a1a.
Based on mtDNA haplogroup predictor his mtDNA turned out to be haplogroup U1a1a.

Good Match! Your results also had extra markers for this haplogroup:

Compared to other U1a1 individuals he has one unique mutation: A10283G.
The Sorani Kurd is sharing two mutations with the Indian samples HM156682(India) Govindaraj: C2836T and G4659A, so this seems to be a new branch of U1a1a.
The latest complete U1a1 sequence is an individual from the Behar study and one individual from Finland:
142783 Britta Laurintytar Kruskopp, Kannus? Suomi
Both belong to U1a1b, a different branch (highlighted in green).
