The instructions differ for each testing company. In all cases you will need to save the file to your computer as opposed to opening it.
The file is available via the button 'Download All Segments' in the ftDNA chromosome browser. The button is at the top right of the page above the list of matches. Please note that if you transferred to ftDNA, you'll need to unlock their chromosome browser before you can download your data.
To download the file, follow these steps:
The file is available on the DNA Matches page by clicking the 'three vertical dots' icon at the top right of the list of matches to expand the menu. Click on 'Export shared DNA segment info for DNA Matches' and the file will be emailed to you (this might take several minutes). Please unzip the file before uploading.
The file is available via the link 'Export this data into CSV file format' at the bottom left at the bottom of the match list.
Gedmatch now provides a downloadable file of all segments via their 'Segment Search' report (please note: this is available to Gedmatch Tier 1 subscribers only).
This CSV can be imported directly into DNA Painter.
Or alternatively you can copy and paste the table of segments provided into a CSV format. To do this:
Tip: if you have a parent tested and uploaded to Gedmatch, you can run the 'Phasing' tool to create separate kits of your maternal and paternal DNA. And if you then run the segment search using these phased kit numbers, you'll be able to import your maternal and paternal DNA separately and assign the matches to the correct chromosomes by editing the imported groups!
Importing a DNA painter map To download a CSV file from a DNA Painter map, visit 'All segment data' (click the settings cog icon above chromosome 1 and you'll find it under 'Reports') and click the '.csv file' link at the top left.
