Instructions for downloading MyHeritage DNA data as well as how to safely access, import or upload your data into another account including automatic downloads and imports. When you obtain your DNA data from My Heritage, you can then use your data with apps in the DNA App Store that analyze your data and provide information about nutrition, fitness, health, rare diseases, genealogy, ancestry, heritage weight loss, detoxification, games, recreation and more.

It's easy to access and use your MyHeritage DNA data.  

 

Automatically import your MyHeritage data (Secure, Simple and Quick)

1. Sign into your Sequencing.com account and go to the Upload Center.

  • If you don't have a Sequencing.com account, click here to import your MyHeritage data and register for a Sequencing.com account at the same time.

2. Click the 'MyHeritage' button under 'Import from Laboratory.'

3. Enter the email address and password for your MyHeritage account.

  • A File Import Progress page will appear that will allow you to monitor the progress of securely importing your DNA data from MyHeritage.

 

Manually upload your MyHeritage data


1. Sign into your MyHeritage account and follow the instructions provided by MyHeritage to download your raw DNA data

  • If your MyHeritage account contains genetic data for two or more people, repeat the steps above to download the raw data for each person (ie from each 'profile' in your MyHeritage account). 
  • Please make sure to open the zip file and rename the file inside. This should be done immediately after downloading each file to your computer so you can identify which person that file belongs to.
    • This is necessary because all files downloaded from MyHeritage have the same exact filename.
      • Since the filenames are all the same, it is difficult to determine which file belongs to which person unless you rename the file immediately after it is downloaded to your computer.

2. After obtaining your MyHeritage file, sign into your Sequencing.com account and go to the Upload Center.

3. Use the 'Upload from My Computer' option on the left to upload the MyHeritage file from your computer into your Sequencing.com account.

4. Click Upload. 

  • Your MyHeritage file will be securely uploaded into your Sequencing.com account.
  • It may take up to 15 minutes before your file appears in your account.

 

Congratulations! You can now use your MyHeritage DNA data with apps in the App Market.
