View Full Version : Archiving Chromo2 Test Data

12-08-2017, 01:06 PM
Since the mydna.global site will go dark on 31 August 2018, the new Y-DNA Warehouse hosted by my haplogroup-r.org project is offering to archive Chromo2 raw results. Files contributed to the site are made available to citizen scientists who are developing phylogenetic trees from direct-to-consumer test data. Those who are found to be a member of one of the Haplogroup R subclades will also be added to reporting in the main site.

The submission form is currently hosted at http://www.haplogroup-r.org/submit_data.php. Please read the Data Policy at the bottom of the form carefully as you consider contributing your results.

To submit your results follow these steps:

Login to your mydna.global account dashboard.
View your Raw YDNA test
Locate the “Download” button on the “Your Fatherline Results” page and download the raw file.
Archive the raw text file to a ZIP folder

On Windows: Right click the file and choose Send To>Compressed (zipped) folder
On Mac: Control + click (or right click) the file and choose Compress “Mr <your name> YDNA Test Results.txt”

Fill in the submission form choosing BISDNA as the Testing Lab.
If you do not know the BISDNA ID (most will not have this information), check the Unknown/Not Provided box next to Kit ID.
Fill in any MDKPA information you may wish to share with analysts.
Select the Raw data upload “Direct” tab and choose the ZIP file created in step 4.
Agree to the Data Policy and Submit.

Once successfully uploaded the result will show in the report at http://www.haplogroup-r.org/shared_data.html.

Just a bit of a bump for thread activity. Mydna.global will cease operations in a little less than two months. Don't let your data whimper into the nether. Submit the Y-DNA raw data to the Y-DNA Warehouse using the links above.

Remember that even if you have taken Big Y since that original test, there may be SNPs in this chip outside of the Big Y. An example of this is S7942 a SNP found under R-DF13. This marker actually signifies a early split from R-FGC11134 and R-CTS4466. We wouldn't know about it without the Chromo2 2000 release. How many more branches lay dormant because we aren't using all of that available data?
