Haplotype would be the better word for a list of differences. You could also
call the actual sequence data a haplotype in some contexts.

Ian Logan keeps a very close eye on GenBank.


GenBank is a very broad database (any kind of DNA from any kind of
organism), and it doesn't have summary statistics. However,
http://www.mitomap.org suggests this query, which takes advantage of
advanced search terms for fields in the database (long URL, ends in DocSum)

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Search&db=Nucleotide&term=Homo[Organism]+AND+gene_in_mitochondrion[PROP]+AND+14000:19000[SLEN]+NOT+pseudogene[All+Fields]&dispmax=100&doptcmdl=DocSum

It shows 7908 at the moment.
