Welcome to FamilyTreeDNA and MyHeritage users


We got many requests from the users from FamilyTreeDNA and MyHeritage members asked us if they could upload their DNA to our platform.

Up to now it was not possible but yes… we did the work for you… It’s possible.

How to upload your DNA?

What is your IQ Score? DNA intelligence tests

Our Intelligence app measuring where your intelligence stands vs the general population is calculated from your DNA. For sure, this is one of our most popular application on our marketplace.

Antonio Regalado wrote an interesting article for the MIT Technology Review about DNA intelligence tests and we take this opportunity to tell you what our app does.

Here is a quick excerpt from the article:

IQ scores for sale

MIT Technology Review found that genetic IQ assessments are already being offered by websites that provide information to people who’ve previously had their DNA measured by 23andMe or Ancestry.com.

Users of GenePlaza, for example, can upload their 23andMe data and pay $4 extra to access an “Intelligence App,” which rates their DNA using data from the big 2017 study on IQ genes.

It shows users where their genes place them on a bell curve from lower to higher IQ. A similar calculation is available from DNA Land.

A screenshot shows how the “intelligence app” for sale at GenePlaza.com uses a DNA test to rate a person’s IQ.


The results come with disclaimers saying the results don’t mean much yet, because they predict only about 5 points of IQ. “I hope people are not getting it thinking that this is a true measure of their intelligence,” says Alain Coletta, a bioinformatics scientist and the founder of GenePlaza.

He says he put up the app “for fun.”

Our app was developed thanks to the work of Aysu Okbay from the Erasmus University of Amsterdam, of course, genetic discoveries are stil in their early phase.

Read the interesting paper written by the New-York Times on the same subject:  In ‘Enormous Success,’ Scientists Tie 52 Genes to Human Intelligence“This represents an enormous success,” said Paige Harden, a psychologist at the University of Texas, who was not involved in the study.

Here is an extract of the review:


GenePlaza gave me a means to reuse my genetic information, with a selection of diverse web apps that could analyse my DNA in different ways to tell me more about my genetic predispositions. I thought their range of web apps was fairly decent, and was pleased to see that there were more coming soon.

The prices of their web apps ranged from relatively inexpensive to relatively expensive. However, uploading your DNA or purchasing a kit entitled you to free credit, and so some apps were essentially free, and all the apps were available to me regardless of which option I chose.
