Merge Y

If you have done different tests for Y-DNA, then you can merge Y-DNA test results from different companies or different products. Currently supports Big-Y AddOn output, Big-Y CSV download, Geno 2.0, 23andMe.

Prerequisites: Microsoft .Net Framework 4.0

Usage: Add the files and save the merged. You can also save the SNPs alone.

If you are using the  Big-Y AddOn, you might have downloaded two files for Known SNP and Novel Variants. This tool helps to identify the new SNPs not mentioned in Novel Variants download and merges them as one download. Along with these two, you can also include other DNA files like Geno 2.0 and 23andMe to merge and remove duplicates.

Change Log
Version 1.3
  • Supports the BigY CSV download for the purpose of exporting SNPs.
Version 1.2
  • Fixes the alignment when position doesn't exist in merged output.
Version 1.1
  • Hangs during view merged or export - fixed. Now, includes a progress-bar to show the progress.
Version 1.0
  • Initial Release.
Note: I don't have sufficient raw files in different formats for the same person to test it effectively. Testing is purely done using simulated data and my own test results. Please let me know if you find any bugs.
