Note: The .csv file of your ethnicity results from 23andMe can not be used to generate a Promethease report. Instructions for obtaining your actual raw data file are here.
23andMe is a private biotech company based in the USA.
23andMe users are encouraged to use Promethease to produce a report based on their raw data; data from all chip versions is suitable. The Ancestry-only product from 23andMe produces exactly the same Promethease report as their Ancestry + Health product.
23andMe began offering direct-to-consumer genetic testing in 2007. The chip versions used since then, and the current approximate Promethease report sizes (total number of genotypes out of the 110,000+ in SNPedia) based on them, are as follows:
|Chip||Base (Illumina)||Released||Report size|
There was also a developer API, but access to it was restricted (eliminated?) in 2018.
