FAQ

Introduction

mitoYDNA processes Y-DNA and Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) data by uploading files (e.g., CSV) and/or allowing for the manual input of this data.   mitoYDNA does NOT process or compare autosomal (atDNA) files; if this is your interest, please go to GEDmatch.com.

The Y-DNA files are the Short Tandem Repeat (STR) marker values (alelles) and represent your Haplotype (the set of DNA alelle values; not to be confused with Haplogroup) . mitoYDNA does not process Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) data!
