Debbie talks you through uploading matches to the website
1 Getting started
Go to dnapainter.com and read the help files to understand how the tool works. Then register for a free user account. You can create multiple profiles, but you might want to start by creating a profile for yourself.
3 Refine the match
Name the match, and add notes if required – eg the testing company. Assign the certainty level, and name the ancestral couple. Indicate whether the match is paternal or maternal. Choose a colour for the segments, and save.
2 Create a match
Click on ‘Paint a New Match’ to add segments to your chromosome map, then copy and paste the segment data into the dialog box. Set the minimum segment size – the default is 7cM. When you’re ready, click ‘Save Match Now”.
4 Add more matches
Repeat the process for all of the other matches that you want to add to your chromosome map. You can choose different colours for each ancestral couple or group, and you can easily add, edit or delete items.
