DNA Error Fix

Several people do DNA tests with multiple DNA companies. While results in general are same, a few test errors and no-calls can be fixed for the same SNP. This tool attempts to fix errors and no-calls comparing multiple DNA files of the same person tested through different companies. The file formats supported are FTDNA, 23andMe and Ancestry DNA

Prerequisites: Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0

Usage: Select the files and click Fix button. Just as a tip, hold ctrl-key when selecting for selection of multiple files (or just drag and drop over the pane).
