I found an interesting post on The Genetic Genealogist blog about a new browser-based software out there called Interpretone. It is likely to be useful in examining autosomal DNA testing results from 23andMe and Lumigenix (along with American International Biotechnology Services and Precision Quality DNA) is currently under FDA scruitiny–the FDA views these services as ones that may need to be formally reviewed by the agency and either approved or cleared before they can be legally sold.”)
Users can load their upload their raw datafiles and use the information to explore their genome. The focus of SpittalStreet.com is ancestry analyses, but users can also receive information on health issues.
The software helps users create an “Ancestry Painting”, also known as, “Chromosome Painting” probably similar to the Hapologroup map I received from dna.ancestry.com.
When humans migrated out of Africa about 100,000 years ago, populations started to form and differentiate leading to changes in allele frequencies in differing locations.

Here too is the link to Interpretone. It’s an easy to use website, which clearly explains how to look up and explore as well as answering the question of how your data is kept private.
