You will need to download your RAW DNA File from Genes For Good App. You want the "GFG_filtered_unphased_genotypes_23andMe." You need to replace a couple of strings using WordPad. Open Wordpad and load the file, and then click on the "Replace Button" on the right side. I noticed the RAW File has additional bits of SNPS that GED cant understand and it confuses the system. This is where the good stuff happens. You want to click replace and then under "find what" start with "22:" and "replace it with" with "#" and then one click on the spacebar. Why? Because it makes it so that line becomes a comment and it wont get read by GED! (Start from Chromosome 22->1 and downwards because it will mess up the formatting if you go from 1->22." Click on "Replace All" afterwards. (The program will freeze but just let it do its thing". You need to do this on all 22 chromosomes! Just replace "Find what" from "22:" to "21:" after it has finished replacing all of the information in the file. Keep going until you get to the 1st chromosome.You will also need to do "X:" "Y:" and "MT:" with the "Find What" and "replace wit" h "#" and then one click on the spacebar. That's it! It should load the file without a problem! I zipped it up loaded it under GEDmatch under the old UPLOAD for 23&me option and now I can use the calculators. GEDMatch will show some issues with tokenizing but so far everything works.
Okay, that wasn't so bad. I filled out over half of all the surveys in under 20 minutes (just have to finish the health tracking ones). I'm going to try it out and see if I can get it to work with Gedmatch.
The thing is that since I had my DNA analyzed already I went ahead and had my dad take the exam. Since we are 'father and son' it should be relatively close right? Well you bet your ass it was close! Too close as a matter of fact! His % for each population various just a little but the closest 4 ancestries remain the same! So you know its legit. I'm at work but I will try to post pictures when I have free time. My next goal is to have this genome file read by DNALAND ( I think it has the most accurate % values for ethnicities). So far no success. Will keep you posted.
These Genes for Good people are pretty tight with releasing raw data, I know that much. None of the other genetic genealogy companies are this tight with the raw data.
And of course you need to live in the USA.
But why wants Facebook to have your DNA?

I would throw my self in the ranks of the enemies untill I would be certain that I would not come out alive. And here I am dying on my bed. So may the eyes of the cowards never see sleep!
