    "Raw DNA" would imply your actual DNA sample, so I think what you actually mean is "Raw data" for "raw data file." Raw data files usually refers to autosomal results. An autosomal raw data file would show the A-C-T-G alleles for each chromosome 1-22, or a separate file for the X chromosome data. There is also the option to download the "Build 37 Concatenated Raw Data," which contains the information for BOTH chromosomes 1-22 AND the X chromosome. Any of those files are in a "GZIP" format (.gz), which when opened contains a .csv file. Usually the .gz files are used to upload to other companies (MyHeritage) or third party tools (GEDmatch) which accept them.

    For Y-DNA:
    • For Y-DNA SNP results (if you've taken an SNP type of test), you can click on "Data Download" in the Y-DNA section on the home page of your account. This will take you to the "Y-DNA Haplotree" page for your results. At the top left of that page, click on "SNP Results." A new window will pop up, with a link to "Download All SNPs" at the top.
    • For Y-DNA STR results (if you've taken an STR type of test), you can click on Y-STR Results (again in the Y-DNA section on your home page), then scroll to the bottom of that page (Y-DNA - Standard Y-STR Values), read the statement "Read before you download," and then click on the orange "CSV" button.
    There are also .pdf certificates that you can download. These will only show the STRs or SNPs for which you've tested positive. Click on "Print Certificates" in the Y-DNA section on your home page, then select either "Y-DNA STR Certificate," or "Y-DNA SNP Certificate," depending on what you want and have results for from testing.
    Thanks for all your help.

    Kind Regards
    Tom

    started a topic Raw DNA

    Raw DNA

    Is it possible to download your raw dna if you get a Y-DNA test and if so where do you go to download it. Any help would be of great use.

    Kind Regards,
