Navigating Your Raw Data

Important: The raw data provided by 23andMe is an advanced view of all the uninterpreted raw genotype data, including data that is not used in 23andMe reports. This data has undergone a general quality review however only a subset of markers have been individually validated for accuracy. As such, the data from 23andMe's Browse Raw Data feature is suitable only for research, educational, and informational use and not for medical or other use.

 

23andMe is preparing to transition customers to an updated version of the 23andMe experience. You will receive an email when your account has been transitioned.

The raw data provided by 23andMe is an advanced view of all the uninterpreted raw genotype data, including data that is not used in 23andMe reports. This data has undergone a general quality review however only a subset of markers have been individually validated for accuracy. As such, the data from 23andMe's Browse Raw Data feature is suitable only for research, educational, and informational use and not for medical or other use.

You can access your raw genetic data in your 23andMe account. Using the Browse Raw Data tool, you can view or download your data at anytime in its raw, uninterpreted format (your A’s, T’s, G’s, and C’s).

The DNA in your genome is organized into 22 pairs of chromosomes, a pair of sex chromosomes (two X, or an X and a Y), and your mitochondrial DNA. The main view of the Browse Raw Data tool shows a pictorial display of each chromosome.

There are two ways to navigate the Browse Raw Data feature:

1. You can type the name of a gene or SNP rsid# into the search box; the viewer will display your data at the specified location.

2. You can click on a chromosome to view the associated SNP (Single Nucleotide Polymorphism) data. When the viewer is zoomed in on a chromosome, the viewer will indicate:

  • If you are viewing a gene or between genes
  • The SNPs positioned nearby
  • Your data at the listed SNPs
