The 23andMe SNP Converter re-formats 23andMe personal genotype results files to a BED-format file you can open and visualize in IGB.
Installing the Converter adds a new menu item to the IGB Tools menu.
To run the converter:
Older data files from 23andMe reference the 2008 version of the reference human genome, also called "build 37" or hg37. In 2013, a newer version was released called "build 38" or hg38. If your data file references hg37, select Use reference to upgrade to convert your data to hg38. Note this will add extra time to the conversion process.
UNC Charlotte graduate student Daniel Narmi developed the 23andMe SNP Converter with NSF Postdoctoral Fellow Nowlan Freese. IGB lead developer David Norris supplied technical, scientific, and design advice.
