You can use the existing EURO-DNA-CALC with Family Finder data. There are only 63 SNPs in common between the dataset used in EURO-DNA-CALC and the chip used by Family Finder, so it will be interesting to see what kinds of results will turn up (*)
Here are the instructions on how to use Family Finder data.
- Download the zip file of EURO-DNA-CALC and extract its contents into a directory. There is a Readme file which you will use, but first you must convert your data.
- You autosomal Family Finder data has a csv.gz extension, i.e., it is a comma-delimited GZIP-compressed file. You should use an suitable program (e.g., Winrar or Winzip) to extract the csv file into the same directory as in step #1.
- Open the csv file in any text editor (Word or Wordpad should work fine).
- Remove the header (RSID,CHROMOSOME,POSITION,RESULT) at the top of the file
- Replace all quotes (") with nothing.
- Replace all commas (,) with tabs.
- Replace all missing value characters (-) with the character m.
- Save the file in the same directory as 23andme.txt. You've just converted your Family Finder data into a format that mimics that of 23andme.
- Follow the instructions in the Readme file exactly as if you had 23andme data.
- Feel free to e-mail me with your results, as I enjoy hearing from people who've used this tool.
