Tool to merge DNA raw data files

The tool is currently under maintenance.

Why should I merge my DNA raw data files?

Some of you have tried multiple ancestry genetic tests to get the most accurate picture of your ancestry. Now that you want more health information from your DNA raw data you are unable to figure out which one works best.

This merger tool will remove those doubts. Simply upload the DNA raw data files that you have from different service providers. 15-20 minutes later a merged raw data file with more number of genetic markers will be sent to your registered email  address. You can download that file and use it on third party DNA upload sites.


Please upload only files in the formats mentioned above. If unsupported files are uploaded you may get back inaccurate results.
