Additional SNPs in various tests
We have added new SNPs to the free traits section and for three of the health tests.
- Traits now has 50 SNPs.
- Reproductive Health, Male and Female Fertility - 55
- Mental Health and Drug Response - 123
- Genetic response to diet and exercise. Propensity to weight gain - 190.
New updated Neanderthal test
4 Neanderthal traits
3,805 markers analysed to give your Neanderthal score
Analysis of 1,328 Neanderthal markers associated with various health risks and diseases.
Ancestry & Health
New Neandertal test and new free traits
You can now unlock an extended Neanderthal test that covers 3,805 markers (SNPs). We have also added 7 new free traits in the health section.
New: 3D pie charts in oracle results
We have added 3D pie charts to illustrate your oracle results. Note that those are only visible on mobile phones when in landscape mode.
New - unlock your nutrition and response to exercise results
This test includes 183 reports related to genetic response to diet and exercise, propensity to weight gain.
New - unlock your mental health results
This new test includes 83 genetic reports related to mental health.
Unlock new fertility results
The new updated reproductive health, male and female fertility test includes 51 reports.
Genetic health and Neanderthal
We have added a new trait relating to the ability to detect floral fragrances and a new Neanderthal marker.
New free calculator
We have added a new test where you can discover if you have specific alleles which would be indicative of African ancestry. Curated by Dilawer Khan of EurasianDNA.com
New: 3D pie charts in ancestry admixture results
We have added 3D pie charts to illustrate your admixture results. Note that those are only visible on mobile phones when in landscape mode.
New ancient genome oracle for K36
We have added a free oracle (by Lukasz Macuga) where you can compare yourself to 477 ancient genomes! If you go to K36 (by Davidski) you can use the oracle to reveal your results!
Ancestry and file format
New free reports and new supported file format
We have added 73 new free SNPs, related to East Asian origins in the “EDAR” report on the Ancestry page. We have also added support for Genes for Good (23andme unphased genotype file format).
Go to this new independent forum to discuss yourDNAportal results: yourDNAportalforum.com
New - use the Oracle to interpret your ancestry results
Oracles using nMonte3 by Ger Huijbregts are now available for a number of ancestry admixture calculators by David Wesolowski and Dilawer Khan.
New ancestry calculator MDLPK6
We have added a new free ancestry calculator: MDLPK6 by Vadim Verenich of the Magnus Ducatus Lituaniae Project.

Focusing on ancient population genomics research. https://eurogenes.blogspot.com/
New ancestry calculator K16
We have added a new free ancestry admixture calculator: K16 by Łukasz Macuga of the LM Genetics Project.
In addition to:
Eurogenes, Davidski (David Wesolowski): K36, EUtest, k13, EUtest V2 K15, K7, K8, jtest14.
Lm genetics: K47
Vadim Verenich of the Magnus Ducatus Lituaniae Project: MDLP K27, MDLPK 33, MDLP K6
Dilawer Khan EurasianDNA: Kurdish K10, Turkic K11, Ancient Near East 13
We have added a function that displays any missing results: if your genome file does not contain the SNP for a marker we are analysing your result will now show a “no call”.
New report: EDAR
This mutation arose 35,000 years ago in China, in a gene called EDAR. It confers, thicker hair follicles, straight hair, shovel shaped incisor teeth, more eccrine sweat glands, greater mammary duct branching density and smaller breasts (in women). This variant is present in Native American and East Asian people. It is not present in Africans and Europeans therefore it can be used to identify Native American ancestry or track Mongolian influences in Europe and West Asia.

A fascinating book from the geneticist David Reich, which utilises the innovation of whole genome extraction to explore our ancient past - revolutionising the understanding of our origins, which previously depended on Archaeology and Linguistics.

New ancestry calculator K47
We have added a new free ancestry admixture calculator: K47 by Łukasz Macuga of the LM Genetics Project.
New account management features
We have added a new account management section on the profile page.
We have added a new ethnicity calculator in the Ancestry section.
We have created a new health report: Reproductive health, male and female fertility.
The results for the health sections have been refreshed - Your traits-Your health risks- Your inherited conditions- Your drug response.
Some file format issues that were giving a few erroneous results for one of the ancestry calculators have been resolved.
We are accepting one raw data genome file per membership and email address. If you want to upload other files you can create another account with a different username and email address.
We may implement being able to upload multiple files per account at some point in the future.
We are now supporting additional file formats
We are now accepting uploads of raw data files from LivingDNA, YourHeritageDNA, National Geographic Geno 2.0, in addition to 23andme, Ancestry and FTDNA. You can upload your raw genetic data files from these providers on the “upload your genome data page”. There are instructions on how to obtain your raw data from your test provider. If you have had a DNA test with a provider not on this list you can email us about it and we will investigate if we can develop support for it in the future.
We have successfully implemented the new data protection regulations for GDPR on the website. We have put launching our forum on hold while we make it GDPR compliant.
Our website pilot is now up and running
I created this project in order to have a place where all aspects of genetic genealogy and health can be explored. We are in the process of developing multiple tools to expand the limits of what we can all learn from our DNA. Please get in touch with any requests and we will try to implement them on our site.
