23andMe Export

I was pleasantly surprised today when I logged into my 23andMe account today to check something and I found a new option to export all my data. It’s about 5 megs in size compressed, and is in a tab delimited format. Here are the first 30 or so lines of my data file:

# This data file generated by 23andMe at: Wed Jan 23 09:48:03 2008
# Below is a text version of your data. Fields are TAB-separated
# Each line corresponds to a single SNP.  For each SNP, we provide its identifier
# (an rsid or an internal id), its location on the reference human genome, and the
# genotype call oriented with respect to the plus strand on the human reference
# sequence.  We are using reference human assembly build 36.  Note that it is possible
# that data downloaded at different times may be different due to ongoing improvements
# in our ability to call genotypes.
# More information on reference human assembly build 36:

I also saw that 23andMe has launched a blog called the spittoon.



  1. You can feed that data into
    Promethease to learn more about your genotypes.

  2. OK. That’s cool and all but it should have been in Atom 1.0 😛
