    Red face WeGene now accepts the raw data file for Ancestry.com's v2.0 chip

    Today we are happy to announce that WeGene now accepts the raw data file for Ancestry.com's v2.0 chip. As usual, you need to upload the file in .zip format as it is downloaded. We now calculate paternal/maternal haplogroups for this chip though with the limited number of SNPs provided accuracy can not be fully guaranteed. Feedback and issue report welcome.

    Feel free to tell us what you thought

    As being based in Thailand, I can only test with National Geographic and FTDNA, I would really appreciate if you could please let me know whether you will soon accept FTDNA raw data as well. Thank you

    It is in planning, but could take a while before we have the resources to address it... Really sorry about that and thanks for your patience

    The lack of import for FTDNA data is sort of annoying, as well as the lack of free import (other data file in 23andme format for instance).
    K8: French East/German South/Austrian 26%, French North East/Belgian/German West 25%, French North 25%, Irish/Scottish/Welsh 10%, French South/French Basque 9%, German East/Czech/Austrian 5%
    K36: French East/German South/Swiss German 33%, French North East/Belgian/German West 31%, French North Central 21%, Irish/Scottish/Welsh 9%, French South/ French Basque 6%
    K16: German 50%, French North West 19%, French North East 11%, Irish/English 11%, French South 9%

    I am totally agree with you.
    I have had my tests with FTDNA and I can't import my data to WeGene

    Would appreciate an update on when Wegenes is likely to accept FTDNA raw data as some of us have only tested with FTDNA

    how accurate are the wegene mtdna predictions for ancestry v2 chips?

    The v2 mtDNA SNPs seem to be selected primarily for medical relevance, not haplogroup assignments. They don't even include the "backbone SNPs" FTDNA uses for predicting a haplogroup from HVR1/HVR2 data
