A list of publicly sequenced DNA databases:
List of DNA databases
- GenBank, a public database of DNA sequences. Genetic genealogists who have taken a full mitochondrial sequence (FMS) mitochondrial DNA test can upload their FMS results for comparison with other sequences.
- Mitosearch is a public mtDNA database sponsored by Family Tree DNA.
- mtDNACommunity A public database of full mitochondrial sequence DNA results.
- mtDNA test results log A genealogical mtDNA database maintained by Charles Kerchner
- Open SNP A public database of genotyping files uploaded by customers of direct-to-consumer testing companies. The database includes files from 23andMe, DeCODE genetics and FTDNA’s Family Finder test
- Semargle.me A Russian website with a variety of searching mechanisms for querying large databases such as Ysearch and Family Tree DNA
- SMGF Y-DNA database The Y-DNA database of the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation
- SMGF mtdna database The mtDNA database of the Sorenson Molecular Genealogy Foundation
- Ybase, a public Y-DNA database sponsored by DNA Heritage. The domain name was purchased by Family Tree DNA when it acquired DNA Heritage in 2011. The database is now offline and it is not known if FTDNA have any plans to resurrect it.
- Y-search, a public Y-DNA database sponsored by Family Tree DNA.
- YHRD, a freely accessible YHRD (Y Chromosome Haplotype Reference Database, http://www.yhrd.org) is designed to store Y chromosome haplotypes from global populations for both forensic genetics and genetic genealogy.
