What Else Can I Do With My DNA Test Results?

DNAIn addition to the information you received from 23andMe, Family Tree DNA, or AncestryDNA about your ancestry, there is a wealth of additional information still within in your DNA.  Below (in alphabetical order) are some of the most popular and well-known tools for wringing every last bit of information out of your raw data, and maximizing the cost of your DNA test.  Please note that I have not used or verified all of these apps; always use caution when providing information to an unknown recipient.

Apps, Extensions, Programs, and Websites:

Fluoxetine is a prescription drug used to treat depression, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, bulimia, and a severe form of premenstrual syndrome. Fluoxetine may improve your mood, sleep, appetite, and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may also decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks. It may also reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks (compulsions such as hand-washing, counting, and checking) that interfere with daily living. Fluoxetine may lessen premenstrual symptoms such as irritability, increased appetite, and depression. It may decrease binging and purging behaviors in bulimia.

    After reading this I am overwhelmed. I had a DNA done with Ancestry and am waiting on results from 23 and me for my youngest adult son and myself.

    • Frank 8 March 2015 / 9:29 am

      Pat you can actually use Livewello’s Gene App for both 23andMe and Ancestry DNA Raw Data. In fact Livewello generates health reports from Raw Data issued by almost any personal genetics lab in the world including: 23andMe, AncestryDNA, Gene By Gene, National Geographic, BioCore, FamilyTreeDNA.

        I paid the $19.95 for livewello and it looks like I now need a paid subscription to view more than 80% of the results. very disappointed

        • Lorrie D 22 March 2017 / 9:26 am

          I just looked at livewello and it does explain what is included and what/why there are subscriptions reports for a fee. This information is found at Health Reports Tool under the Genetics tab on the homepage.
          I think the info provided for $20 might be worth it since it sounds like they are providing you the information that was not processed through 23andme. Ie ALZ. “As long as a SNP has an rsID and Minor Allele, LiveWello will generate a gene report for you. The reason for this feature is that people should really have all the information about ALL the genes in their raw data not just some of them. “

  3. Blaine Bettinger 29 September 2013 / 8:52 pm

    Pat – don’t be overwhelmed! These tools and sites are all optional, and you don’t need to use them to gain plenty of information about your ancestry from your results.

  4. Kathleen 12 October 2013 / 1:53 pm

    Thanks for the list, but one correction: DNAMatch4iPad is not free.

  6. Charles Serio 30 November 2013 / 6:15 pm


    This is professional microarray raw data analysis software program, so be warned, only those with REALLY deep pockets will be able to afford it. However, the page does have a link to free trial software. I have not downloaded the free trial, because it requires registration, and “Orginization” is a required field. This company might choose to exclude individual users. Should anyone, acting as an individual and not as an orgizational representative, sucessfully download and use this trial, please report your impressions. I have looked at the company website, and read their brochures. This software promises one click, ease of use, and the report presentation and variety are truely amazing. A good read.

    • Charles Serio 30 November 2013 / 6:44 pm


      The above link will take you to a page displaying the products that are on sale, during the current month. The reason I did not try to DL the trial is that my own raw data is not yet available. With the price as high as it is, I am pretty sure that the trial will be very time-limited, and I don’t want to risk wasting a one-shot trial, until I can analyze my own data. I assume that the trial will also have some abilities disabled (like actually printing results), but as long as the analysis functions work and the results are displayed, a screenshot will be just fine.

    • Charles Serio 30 November 2013 / 6:52 pm


      The above link takes you to the software company’s website, should you wish to read their in-depth information.

    Hello, this weekend is pleasant in favor of me, because this occasion i am reading this impressive educational article here at my home.

  8. EF 29 December 2013 / 7:08 am

    WOW thank you! I want to purchase a 23andMe DNA test soon, and am trying to learn as much as possible about how and where to aim the raw data so I can use it to interpret toward figuring out many of my own health issues. I have met w such drama from many people who insist this is not possible and that 23+Me must have been selling erroneous information all this time. Isn’t the DNA data they sell the precise same data that any other company or lab sell me? I do get that they are being prohibited from offering too much ‘interpretation’ as a selling tactic, but their methods/tech/product are still scientifically real and valid, correct?
    …and thank you again for this clear article, I found this through a Search on DuckDuckGo

    • Fifi 13 September 2016 / 3:15 pm

      I used Nutrahacker and confirmed that I have a problem with myacin class antibiotics including streptomycin and neomycin, and this is most likely the cause of my hearing loss, starting with neomycin ear drops as a child. The test is expensive ($149) but for someone who found out through running my 23andme results through the Sterling’s App and found out I have a problem metabolizing and detoxifying most medications, it is cheap considering how much hearing aids and doctor visits cost and the harm I have suffered by using medications and medical and food additives that I do not metabolize and detoxify-tolerate. It is worth this amount to to me prevent the harm done to me by the chemicals I found out I do not tolerate.

      • ALD 13 December 2016 / 1:41 am

        Hi! Which SNPs could you tell this from? I think this might be the similar case for me. I know I have some degree of MTHFR mutation and also lost my hearing due to antibiotics from ear infections as a baby. It certainly would be great to know as much information as possible! Hearing aids and doctors visits are definitely not fun and I definitely want to avoid as much damage as possible!!! Thanks!!!

      • ALD 13 December 2016 / 2:37 am

        I actually just used Sterling’s App to find out that I am +/+ for the Neomycin SNP. I really hope in the future that all babies are gene tested as soon as they’re born so that doctors know what to prescribe and how to treat different issues.

  24. Steve 16 February 2015 / 9:10 am

    I saw the post for Nutrihacker.com above, and I went to the site. The free analysis was interesting, so I looked farther into the options. My concern with the site is when it came time to enter credit card data, there is simply a pop up with no mention of security of my information. There is no “https” visible, no means to pay via PayPal or Amazon checkout, only with your credit card. I’d avoid entering that data until this is fixed, if it ever is.

  25. Steve 16 February 2015 / 9:12 am

    If you have MTHFR, here’s a site that is associated with Dr. Ben Lynch and analyzes 23andme raw data: http://mthfrsupport.com

  26. Deb 17 February 2015 / 9:53 am

    Hi. I had two 23andme failed tests – not enough DNA in my saliva!! I was doing the test mainly for health reasons so got my test done through genebygene.com and have been able to successfully download my raw data to livewello. But, although genebygene is a parent company of Family Tree DNA and uses the same technology, Family Tree DNA won’t accept my raw data from them – I would have to pay to have another gene test done to access any ancestry information. Does anyone know a company that would let me download my raw data from genebygene so I can get something similar to 23andme or ancestry.com?

  27. David Khan 25 February 2015 / 11:02 am

    I noticed that you are having problems with the DNA testing on a number of sites. I used https://musclegenes.com/ and got a very quick response and a level of service from them.

    Oh my goodness! Amazing article dude! Thanks, However I am encountering issues with your RSS.
    I don’t understand the reason why I can’t join it. Is there anybody getting similar RSS problems?
    Anyone that knows the solution can you kindly respond?

  30. Bruce Esposito 23 March 2015 / 10:19 am

    Maybe I don’t get it, but LiveWello is just an awful site for a non-medical user. It gives you a very detailed report that is very difficult to understand by a layman like me. I guess if you are a researcher it would be great, but I feel like it was a waste of money for me. It just don’t know how to use it.

    Promethease on the other hand was much easier to understand and helpful. It simplified each item and then linked to the detailed studies/reports. It was also a lot cheaper and seemed to have all of the same data that LiveWello had. It just doesn’t look as “polished” as LiveWello, but you can’t judge a book by its cover.

    For a basic user just wanting to see how their DNA relates to their health I would not waste my money with LiveWello, but would go with Promethease.

    • Steve Bauman 20 October 2017 / 10:17 am

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I got my own and my partners DNA profile through 23andme. I then managed to get an additional report from NutraHacker – which was really useful (the Complete Gene Mutation Report). HOWEVER, I can’t seem to get this report from NutraHacker for my partner; it keeps bringing up my report again (we’re both registered under my name on the 23andme website). Any ideas of what to do?

  35. George Fanucci 12 May 2015 / 9:44 am

    Blaine, Thank you for your thoroughly useful blog – the best Genetic Genealogy blog I’ve yet found.

    I discovered your blog as soon as I began doing some armchair research (on my iPad) to find out more about DNA and Genealogy. My college-age kids knew that I have been doing Genealogy for our extended family, in my spare time, for over a decade. So, they gave me a 23andMe kit for my birthday, and I began voraciously reading everything I could find to get up-to-speed on this subject. As soon as I got my results from 23andMe (which took about five weeks) I ran it thru Promethease.com and then spent a few dozen hours reading even more.
    I have just built an extended family tree website with several sections on DNA and Genetic Genealogy, and have cited links to several of your awesome blog posts.
    I look forward to learning more and sharing it with my extended family, on my new website and my new blog.

    • Blaine Bettinger 12 May 2015 / 9:55 am

    I have been trying to get an ethnicity DNA test done through ancestry.com since the end of Dec. I just found out today that my 3rd test failed again and I had to order another new test. My test fails at the genome phase every time. I understand there is a small percentage of people that don’t shed enough cells to be tested. Any ideas on how I can enhance my chances of getting a good test?

  37. Larry Baker 13 June 2015 / 3:36 pm

    I’m wondering if you have worked with “Genebase” ? It’s a company based in Canada. I had my mtDNA done there and received my Haplogroup of T2b from them.

    “tools for wringing every last bit of information out of your raw data, and maximizing the cost of your DNA test.”
    Any tips on how I can maximize the value of my DNA test, versus it’s cost?

    you can generate SNPedia links from your 23andMe raw data with this new service (of course for free): https://snpedialinks.org

    My favorite tool for interpreting raw data for health and fitness is DNA Doctor, which is the only tool I know which is available as android and IOS app. the website is http://www.biostatushealth.com/dnadoctor/

  42. Ana 13 September 2015 / 8:47 am

    There is one another worth to try; http://www.genoomy.com, coupon code; REDDIT1.
    You upload Your genome from 23andme and informations about SNPs are colored and described for You. There is an option to filter or segregate by different values (p-value, OR etc.)

  43. Bill Berit 14 September 2015 / 9:47 am

    Is there anything for MYHERITAGE.COM and RAW text file data?
    I have the RAW file from ancestry, but want to use it in my MYHeritage.com family tree. Is this possible?

    • Ana 14 September 2015 / 9:57 am

      You mean raw data from genome test? If You send it to [email protected] we can try put in into genoomy.com and send You results. Greeds

    • Erin Van Zante 7 June 2016 / 3:53 pm

      My heritage is finally offering free matching with uploads from ancestry. Already uploaded mine- still waiting- they are sending out emails when software (?) is ready. 🙂

  44. Melinda 22 September 2015 / 7:01 pm

    An additional free tool that I find invaluable is Genome Mate Pro. You can find it here: http://genomemate.org/

    Project Infinome offers a free genomic search engine that links your 23andMe data to millions of research papers on the genes you care about. Check it out.


  47. Genomapp 26 November 2015 / 10:10 am

    Hello! Genomapp is a new app (iOS and Android) that analyzes your 23andMe genetic test to give you the maximum information of your DNA.


    When you submit your raw data file to Genomapp you obtain a report which associates your genotype with a list of conditions. The report contains different categories such as complex diseases (cancer, Alzheimer, Parkinson…), monogenic diseases, inherited conditions, drugs response and traits.

    Genomapp features a demo mode (no registration required) that allows users to fully test the app for free. The reports are available for less than 5 euro.

    You can see some screenshots in this video:

    Natural DNA Solutions (www.naturaldnasolutions.com) offers the the only comprehensive genetic report that 1. Covers 1400 genes. 2.. Lists homozygous and heterozygous SNPs with their functional description so the doctor/patient does not to look them up. 3. Suggests testing and lifestyle solutions for optimizing your genetic potential. 4. Prioritizes SNPs that are the most-likely source of health problems.

    I have raw dna from Gene for Good on Facebook. No site will allow me to upload and compare my dna with those on their site. If you figure out away please let me know. 🙂

    • IMPROBABLE GIRL 28 May 2016 / 7:09 pm

      You can use GFG data with promethease and Livewello, genetic geanie seems to have changed their program somehow and results don’t show right, GFG staff do answer fb and email questions fairly well too

  51. S 7 May 2016 / 2:21 pm

    Thanks for this helpful list!

    Also, if people don’t want to pay for the original 23andme test, the Genes for Good study offers similar information through a spit test. However, you do have to complete a certain number of surveys first and be willing to have your (de-indentified) data used for reseach. https://genesforgood.sph.umich.edu/

    • Marz 26 May 2016 / 9:35 am

      So glad you passed on this information. I will try Genes for Good.

  52. Michelle DuBreuil 17 May 2016 / 1:10 am

    I obtaine DNA from a wax tissue sample from my father who passed some five years ago. A friend who works in a DNA lab obtained the DNA and we put it in a saliva kit, using a benign medium – but it was refused by Ancestry.com. I have the data file but they and 23andMe will not accept “third-party DNA results”.

    Any advice where I can send the iDat or genotype files to be uploaded so I can obtain his results? We celebrated when we got beautiful DNA from this formalin wax sample never imagining that the hard part would be getting the results uploaded to a database.

  53. Marz 26 May 2016 / 9:32 am

    codegen.eu is a great free site. LIVEWELLO sucks because after you pay $19.99 they only give you a small amount of information and ask you to pay another $5 per month for full access to your information and report. The site is full of people asking for health advice based on their genes and nobody at the helm providing answers to the questions. I told them I was disappointed that they gave very little information for the price I paid and they refused to cancel my account and give me a refund. You can get the same information and more for FREE via the other websites above.

    • Mark 31 March 2017 / 1:12 pm

      codegen is free and has tons of data, but it is poorly organized. Like drinking from a fire hose.

    • Ellen 9 August 2017 / 8:40 pm

      How do you save your Codegen report?

  54. John Lead 8 June 2016 / 11:30 am

    If you think IMPUTE2 and similar tools are too complicated (they are), you can also just go to http://www.impute.me and have it done auto-magically (plus several cutting-edge analysis tools available)

  55. Alyssa 28 July 2016 / 6:55 pm

    Thanks for this list. I’m always looking for new ways I can use my 23andMe raw data to learn more.
    One resource that’s missing from your list is an online holistic wellness company called Elevated Health Solutions. The website says that the owner of the business is certified as a clinical nutri-genomics expert. I sent her my Raw Data because I was worried about some of my SNP’s and mutations. She helped me to understand what each SNP meant and how to address the ones that could be helped. The report and suggestions she made to me have changed my quality of life. I feel like my old self again, which for me is incredible since I haven’t felt “well” for about 10 years now. What I’m happiest about is now the headaches and migraines that I used to suffer from daily for years occur only about once or twice a month now. I’m sure not everyone will have as great an experience with it as me, but I believe that it’s worth checking out.

    • wolf max 3 April 2017 / 11:15 pm

      how much did she charge aka rate for that level of help?

  56. Jay 19 August 2016 / 5:17 pm

    Great article! You should add the free genetics tool from Found My Fitness. It is like Promethease but also provides applicable health tips based off your personal genetics.


  57. Tom Ballard, ND 31 August 2016 / 2:01 pm

    I think it’s useful to have a number of resources for converting DNA raw data into useful health information. The problem is that when a report focuses too narrowly, say for instance only on MTHFR or “Alzheimer’s genes”, or detoxification pathways, then the patient misses a significant amount of important information related to their health.

    In addition, if the report only lists SNPs and doesn’t discuss lifestyle fixes such as nutrition, supplements, detoxification, and activity, then we’re missing an opportunity to optimize genetic/enzyme function. Right now the field is littered with companies that are potentially hurting patients by not presenting a comprehensive picture. It’s analogous to the old days when we only reported total cholesterol and not LDL, HDL, VLDL, etc. Knowing the whole scope of genetic presentation allows for a much more accurate and individualized treatment plan.

    The only service offering comprehensive genetic health reports and treatment options is Natural DNA Solutions.

    DNA.land is cool, they also will reformat your file to 23&me, so you can do more.

  62. Tom Ballard, ND 10 November 2016 / 8:38 am

    From my experience of utilizing DNA in my office over the past 3 years, I find it troublesome how many doctors and patients are relying on a limited number of genes, most commonly methylation. We are made up of a complex network of genes that produce proteins and enzymes. Methylation, for example, does not work alone. it is effected by protein production, trans-sulfuration, vitamin B12, toxic metals, and many other factors. So, when you focus so narrowly, you’re bound to miss important health factors. Natural DNA Solutions (www.naturaldnasolutions.com) develops a genetic health report based on 1400 genes, including a description of gene function, and treatment options for optimizing gene function – and therefor optimizing health.

      Please don’t spam your quackery here. 🙂

      “Naturopathy or naturopathic medicine is a form of pseudoscientific, alternative medicine that employs an array of practices branded as “natural”, “non-invasive”, and as promoting “self-healing.” The ideology and methods of naturopathy are based on vitalism and self-healing, rather than evidence-based medicine. Naturopathic practitioners generally recommend against modern medical practices, including but not limited to medical testing, drugs, vaccinations, and surgery. Instead, study and practice are focused on unscientific notions, often leading naturopathic doctors to diagnoses and treatments that have no factual merit.

      Naturopathic medicine is considered by the medical profession to be ineffective and possibly harmful, raising ethical issues about its practice. In addition to accusations from the medical community, such as the American Cancer Society, naturopaths and naturopathic doctors have repeatedly been accused of being charlatans and practicing quackery. Over the years, many practitioners of naturopathic medicine have been found criminally liable in the courts of law around the world. In some countries, it is a criminal offense for naturopaths and naturopathic doctors to label themselves as medical professionals.

      Naturopathic doctors are actively pushing for more recognition in the U.S. and Canada.”

  64. Ali H 7 February 2017 / 4:45 pm

    Has anyone used DNA Tribes?(http://www.dnatribes.com/)
    If so what do you think about this service?

  65. Tom Ballard 8 February 2017 / 6:43 am

    Haven’t used it. Ancestry only. No health information that I could see.
    The advantage of 23andme and sometimes Ancestry.com is that third-party genetic health report providers use their raw data to generate a health report.
    For instance, http://www.naturalDNASolutions.com takes 23andme and Ancestry.com raw data and turns it into a 140+ page health report including actions you can take to improve your gene expression.

  68. Sorry, there are no measures of dispersion — the yields don’t come from sampling but from comparing the total cotton harvest to the estimates for total acres planted to cotton.I fully agree, it’s hard to draw conclusions from the yield figures, except obvious ones like the ones I drew for A.P.:yields going down is ugly the rise in yields does not correspond to the spread of Bt cotton (it started 8 years before Bt cotton became popular)

    Does anyone know if you can upload raw data from Ancestry and 23andme to Livewello after paying only the $19.95? I had ancestry dna done over a year ago but wasn’t aware there was a raw data file. So, I had a 23andme DNA done a couple of months ago. I have uploaded my raw data file from 23ndme to Livewello, and got all my reports from it. Just today, I found out there is a raw data file from Ancestry DNA, so I have downloaded it to my PC. But, I can’t find where I can upload it to 23andme without creating a new profile and paying another $19.95.

    Hi Blaine,
    Thank you for great input. I would suggest that you correct this phrase: “the most popular and well-known tools for wringing every last bit of information out of your raw data, and maximizing the cost of your DNA test.” Rather than maximizing the cost, I think you meant to say maximizing the utility, or making the most of the cost, etc.

    I am surprised that you omitted Genome Mate Pro (getgmp.com). I use this free application daily.

    Another site I found early on was Dr. Amy Yasko’s methylation analysis tool. See https://www.knowyourgenetics.com/

  76. Sarah 1 October 2017 / 8:20 pm

    There is a Google Play app called Genomapp that you can use your Ancestry raw dna file with. It tells you about diseases and other health related things that you have a higher risk of having. It’s not super descriptive though unfortunately.

  77. Tom Ballard 13 October 2017 / 1:41 am
