There are a number of autosomal DNA tools which can be used on your match data or raw data from a 23andMe, AncestryDNA or Family Tree DNA Family Finder test.

  • 23++ A Google Chrome extension for use with data from 23andMe. For details see the 23++ Blog
  • 529andYou A Google Chrome extension for use with data from 23andMe. For details see the reviews by Kitty Cooper and Rebecca Walker
  • AncestryDNA Helper A Google Chrome extension provided by Jeff Snavely which allows you to extract and download a spreadsheet of your matches.
  • Athletigen A tool using 23andMe which gives you a report on athletic performance
  • David Pike's Tools Utilities for analysing FamilyFinder and/or 23andMe raw data
  • DNAGedcom This site was created by Rob Warthen to help users quickly analyze their data. This site allows you to download data from FTDNA and 23andMe. In addition, it has the ability to compare many Gedcoms at one time through the GWorks utility. Finally, the JWorks and KWorks tools allow you to quickly group your data together in a visually appealing manner.
  • DNAMatch An iPad app for the processing of autosomal DNA data which serves as an alternative to the use of conventional spreadsheets
  • FTDNA Ged to GEDCOM converter This site is no longer available with the change to FTDNA format. DNAGedcom will be providing an updated tool for this feature.
  • GedMatch A free utility to compare autosomal DNA data files from all three testing companies and to compare Gedcom files. A number of other very useful tools are also provided.
  • GedMatch Plus A free Google Chrome browser extension provided by Felix Immanuel which automatically caches your one-to-many, one-to-one, and X one-to-many analyses for seven days and helps to reduce the load on the servers.
  • Genes and Us A free service which allows users to upload their 23andMe data to see which genes and traits they are likely to pass on to their children.
  • Genetic genealogy tools A selection of genetic genealogy tools provided by Felix Immanuel in Adelaide, South Australia. The tools include a Build 36 to 37 converter for autosomal raw data files and a 23andMe genes converter.
  • Genomemate A tool for comparing autosomal DNA data and identifying common ancestors developed by Becky Walker, a 23andMe member and a programmer.
  • HirSearch
  • Ian Logan's minor allele program. A program which identifies rare and uncommon SNPs. The program is designed to work with the v3 Illumina chip used by 23andMe and Family Tree DNA's Family Finder test.
  • Interpretome A set of online tools from Stanford University for analysing your personal genomic data. For further explanation see this blog post by Daniel MacArthur.
  • NCBI Genome remapping service
  • OpenSNP OpenSNP allows customers of direct-to-customer genetic tests to publish their test results, find others with similar genetic variations, learn more about their results, find the latest primary literature on their variations and help scientists to find new associations.
  • Promethease, a free shareware program which creates a report with additional health and trait information.
