Sample files are available for you to use with any app. Even if you don't have your own genetic data you can still experience the app by selecting one of the sample files.
The sample files are real genetic data files of individuals that are publically available. This includes sample files from people that are currently alive as well as ancient genetic data that researchers have discovered, such as caveman DNA.
The sample files available to you will depend on your selection for "I am a..." at the bottom of your My Profile tab of Settings. If you choose 'Researcher' then you'll see a large number of sample files along with technical information about those files. If you choose 'Individual or Family' then the sample files will be more user friendly and fun.
