Manual Entry Help

This page has instructions on how to manually enter your Y-DNA into the mitoYDNA data base from:  

  1. Sorenson
  2. Genebase
  3. Oxford Ancestors
  4. National Geographic GENO 2.0
  5. Other - this may include:
  6. If you enter 'Other' as the Test Company, please add comments in the Testing Company ID -or- Additional Information field of the Kit definition to indicate which Company these results are from.
When creating a kit for manual entry, don't select a file on 'Choose File' and when you click SAVE, you will be taken to the Manual Entry screen to enter each DYS number.


Y-DNA

When users don't have a file for upload, this page was designed to allow users to enter their STR alelle values from any of the test companies listed above .   If you only have a 37 markers test, enter ONLY those 37 values and leave the DYS markers that your test didn't include at zero.   Select the value from the pull-down (see screen below) which lists the normal range of numbers for this DYS marker.   For multi-value markers shown in BOLD, enter the first value as the 'a' the second as the 'b' and so on.   Entry fields are in alpha/numeric order (which is NOT true for most Results data).



If you have a rare mutatation that does not fit the range of alelle values for an STR marker, please enter the closest value and contact info@mitoYDNA.org with your Kit number for support.



Conversions

DNA test companies have varying standards when they determine STR marker values for certain DYS points on the Y-Chromosome.   The links and chart below define the differences for each company (an 'NT' in a column means this DYS is Not Tested for this company).   These are used by mitoYDNA.org to automatically convert the data you enter (for each company) to the ISOGG/FTDNA standard to faciliatate correct matching across different company's results. To ensure we are comparing "apples-to-apples"!
