Dienekes brought this to everyone's attention in this blog post (http://dienekes.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/haplofind-mtdna-haplogroup-assignment.html). The tool can be found here (https://haplofind.unibo.it/).

You'll have to upload the data in FASTA format (looks like this (http://www.thermoscientificbio.com/uploadedImages/Products/Custom_Synthesis/FASTA.png)). I'll be giving it a go sometime soon.

There's also James Lick's utility, which is more or less is instant, and anonymous.

James can do more than just fasta so his tool is much better for genetics. Although the italian one also shows mitochondrial diseases.

Here is an output from the new tool, comparing my C4a1 sample with a Ukranian(my closest match) on Genbank

How did you use the tool exactly? I'm interested in hearing how other genealogists have applied it.

I only tested it with my file, as I'm away from home right now and don't have access to my stash of FASTA files. It came up with the correct haplogroup. It gives results as differences from the RSRS, and I still prefer the CRS. It has a difference convention for the common insertions 309.1C and 315.1C (308insC and 310insC) and omitted the 522.1A and 522.2C reported by FTDNA's RSRS tab.

I copied all the fasta files from Genbank that were close to my sample into a single file (i initially ran Blast to sort out to the top 100), which i then ran through the tool. Doing all of them at the same time, saves a lot of effort. I could also analyze partial sequences this way. It does omit extra markers in the final snapshot, but all markers are present if you download the data say into an excel sheet.

I have also just encountered this. The analysis also put me as I2 which matches other sources. This is the first tool i have seen that analyses in respect of medical conditions (having tested with FTDNA it's not something i have explored). Of particular interest is that it lists a small number of my mtdna mutations (4) as 'not expected', i'm not entirely sure what this means? Are these mutations simply outside the known for I2, perhaps potentials for the defining of a new branch?
