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

  • David Pike's Tools Utilities for analysing FamilyFinder and/or 23andMe raw data
  • DIYGenomics Side-by-side comparison of consumer genomic services (deCODEme, Navigenics and 23andme) by loci and variants for 20 conditions (diabetes, cancers, heart disease, etc.)
  • DNATools This is the DNAGedcom website with tools for downloading match lists and comparing segment data. See the blog post by CeCeMoore "Brought to you by the AdoptionDNA Community...DNAGedcom" for screenshots and further explanation. See also the blog posts by by Roberta Estes and Sue Griffiths on Don Worth's Autosomal DNA Segment Analyser which is hosted on the DNAGedcom website.
  • 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 A free utility created by James Kelley which allows users to create a GEDCOM file from a tree which has been uploaded to an FTDNA personal page or which appears on an FTDNA match list. Instructions can be found here.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Genomemate A tool for comparing autosomal DNA data and identifying common ancestors developed by BMWalker, a 23andMe member and a programmer. As of January 2013 the tool is in the beta-testing phase with an emphasis on cosmetics and usability.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • NCBI Genome remapping service
  • Genetic genealogy tools A selection of genetic genealogy tools provided by Felix Chandrakumar in Adelaide, South Australia. The tools include a Build 36 to 37 converter for autosomal raw data files and a 23andMe genes converter.
