You can access your imputed files by going to the “Products” section in your account.
You can find your phased files in the “Products” section of your account.
We are currently working on the ability to accept VCF files. In the meantime, you can use our “VCF to RAW” service to convert your VCF file to a standard RAW file, which can be found in our store.
Unfortunately, BAM and CRAM files are too large to be uploaded directly to our site as they contain the entire genome. However, you can use our “WGS to RAW” service to convert your WGS (BAM/CRAM) file to a standard RAW DNA file, which can be found in our store.
A VCF file is a type of computer file that stores information about variations in a person’s DNA. DNA is the code that tells our bodies how to grow and function, and it is made up of long chains of molecules called genes. Sometimes, there are small changes or mistakes in a person’s DNA, called variations. These variations can affect how a person’s body works and can cause different traits, like eye color or height.
A VCF file is a way to store and share information about these variations. It only includes the variations that are found in a specific person’s DNA. This is different from a regular RAW file, which includes variants and non variants.
So, when a person gets a report based on a VCF file, it means that the report is only taking into account the variations that are found in that person’s DNA. It does not include all of the possible variations that might be found in a regular RAW file. This can sometimes make the report not accurate as expected, because it does not have all of the necessary information.
If you have a DNA file that has already been phased, it means that the file contains information about which alleles (versions of a gene) an individual inherited from each parent. In this case, it would not be necessary to perform phasing on the file again, as the information is already present.
However, it is possible to perform additional analyses on a phased DNA file to further investigate the genetic information it contains. For example, you could use software tools to identify variations or mutations within the sequence or to compare the individual’s genome to a reference genome to identify differences. You could also use the phased DNA file to predict the likelihood that an individual will pass on particular traits to their offspring.
It is important to note that the accuracy of the phasing information in a DNA file depends on the quality and coverage of the data used to generate the file, as well as the phasing method used. If you have concerns about the accuracy of the phasing information in your DNA file, you may want to consider re-phasing the data using a different method or with additional data.
DNA phasing refers to the process of determining which alleles of a particular genetic variant, or single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP), are inherited from which parent. In the case of heterozygous SNPs, the individual carries two different alleles, one inherited from each parent. In this case, DNA phasing can help to determine which allele was inherited from which parent.
In the case of homozygous SNPs, the individual carries two copies of the same allele. In this case, DNA phasing is not necessary, as it is already known that both copies of the allele were inherited from the same parent.
DNA phasing can be useful in a variety of contexts, including genealogy, medical research, and forensic analysis. For example, DNA phasing can help to identify genetic risk factors for certain diseases, or to determine relationships between individuals in a family tree. It can also be used to help identify the source of DNA evidence in a criminal investigation.
It is possible to use DNA analysis to reconstruct approximately half of an individual’s DNA from each parent. This is because an individual inherits approximately half of their DNA from each parent. DNA analysis can be used to identify specific genetic variants, or single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), that are inherited from each parent, and to determine the specific combination of alleles inherited from each parent. This can be useful for a variety of purposes, including genealogy, medical research, and forensic analysis
No, you cannot merge RAW files from different people. The merging process must be done with samples from the same person only.
Our service has the capability to predict your MTDNA and YDNA haplogroups based on the specific DNA markers (SNPs) present in your DNA file. Some genetic testing companies include this information in their provided DNA files, while others may offer only partial or no such information.
The genetic testing companies known for delivering a comprehensive and accurate set of MTDNA and YDNA haplogroup DNA markers (SNPs) include:
Conversely, there are genetic testing companies that offer a less comprehensive and lower-quality set of MTDNA and YDNA haplogroup DNA markers (SNPs), which are:
Furthermore, certain genetic testing companies, like FTDNA, do not provide any MTDNA or YDNA haplogroup DNA markers (SNPs) in their reports.
If your DNA file lacks the necessary MTDNA or YDNA haplogroup DNA markers (SNPs), the report will display a message indicating this absence.
The report also includes a quality score alongside your haplogroup predictions, offering an indication of the accuracy of the predictions made.
You have two options to get a better MTDNA or YDNA haplogroup prediction:
*these companies offer full genome services
No, your DNA does not change, so if you test today and 20 years later, your genetic file will be the same.
Although our service is designed to work and accept any DNA file from any company, our algorithm best performs in the latest genotyping platforms used by the main companies.
We recommend uploading a file from Illumina GSA genochip. This genochip is currently used by the following DNA companies (Sept. 2023):
* It is not Illumina GSA, but the DNA markers overlap with Illumina GSA's chip.
We accept RAW DNA files from the following companies*:
*DNA Genics is not endorsed by or affiliated with these companies.
DNA data uploaded to DNA Genics is completely private and secure. Only you can see the DNA data you upload.
