MyGenomeBox DNA – Accepts Raw Data from Several DNA Companies

I ran across MyGenomeBox when I was working on the Alphabetical Listing of DNA Companies. The company is based in South Korea. It has two options – you can upload your raw data from several companies – it needs to be a txt file (and not the zipped file – keep the zipped file as many places require the zipped file for uploading) or a VCF file (Variant Call Format – not to be confused with, vCard File a different type of file that is often used to store contact information.

As noted below, they accept raw data from several companies:Gene2me, DragonGeneBox, 23andMe, AncestryDNA, FamilyTreeDNA and VCF files (often a fairly large file. They accept file size uploads of 1 GB or less with a total allowed storage space of 3 GB in your account. If you have an autosomal test from another company, you can always try and see if it will upload.

It has 70 free apps and 33 paid apps. You can use all of the free apps without buying any paid apps. I added all of the free apps without buying anything.

MyGenomeBox: – South Korean company. You can use your raw data (not sure which companies they accept raw data) or you can order from several companies. After creating your account, you can use 23andMe or Facebook to connect with your account. ****

**** I haven’t tried logging in with either 23andMe or Facebook.

It offers 70 free apps and 33 paid apps. The paid apps cost points or mileage and you have to purchase or earn points or mileage to buy the paid apps. For signing up, I received 10 mileage points and I used 9.99 of them to buy the Ancestry ethnicity results which cost 9.99, leaving me 0.01 mileage. They accept credit/debit cards and PayPal.

Apps are broken down into categories:

Here’s the list of the free apps – you have to click on each one and choose your DNA kit you are using (even if you only upload one kit) and click the check box. Some of the apps are available elsewhere or as part of your results from some other companies. You can compare some examples in my blog post: Insitome Regional Ancestry DNA Results – I will update that post as I dig through my results from MyGenomeBox. I don’t think I missed any, but it’s a long list.
