  • mtdna public data base - where is it?

    hi- they say: "...a periodically updated database comprising all data donated by participants..." is available to the public. can someonone please tell me how do I access it? Does anyone know how often they update it? Also, is there anyway to tell how much overlap there is with people who also post to mitosearch.org? I'm assuming also from the quote that it just contains the "donated" data, and not the hundreds of thousdands of samples they collected for their own research puposes? Thanks.

    If I recall correctly, I think you have to be logged into the GP to see their database. I lost track of my GP Genographic Project Kit ID (i.e. password) a long time ago so I haven't been able to log in.

      I think this might be what you are looking for:

      https://genographic.nationalgeograph...ticipation.zip

      https://genographic.nationalgeograph...ticipation.xls

      -Let me know if these work. I can't get them to work on my computer. They just freeze up.
      The documents that is, not the computer.

        thanks- i'll try downloading the zip file I guess- would it be accesible online rather than as a file if I had a password for ng? what other goodies are available to people with passwords that the rest of us can't access?

          My genographic account has no goodies. The information they give is pretty simple. I also tried to find the mtDNA file on their website and it is no longer available. It may be that they're preparing a newer version.

          The file can be opened if you give it all the resources you can and some serious time( do something around the house to not lose patience). Do not despair if it looks like it's not responding, it will most likely recover. I strongly recommend saving whatever results you get out of it separately for easy access. I really appreciate having found this file because I have a better idea about my results.

          Does anyone have the corresponding file for the Y DNA?

            This is the thing I don't get. When I got my results back from FTDNA I paid to have them transferred to the GP. So all they do is repeat the haplogroup that FTDNA already gave you and give a somewhat brief description of that haplogroup? I thought they'd give more specific information (not that specific but more than arrows pointing in three vague directions) and provide access to a database with all the samples they've collected.

            Unless I'm missing something, which is a possibility.

              public participation database

              I downloaded the file and I found my haplogroup. What can you do with the file, what is it for?

                ... I was tidying up my study recently and came across an old spiral notebook that had a number scribbled on the inside back cover which looked suspiciously like a GP kit ID number. Turns out it was!

                  There is also this free mtDNA public database provided by FTDNA:
