Terms and Conditions for the MapS Phasing Application


MapS Phasing is a software tool to phase the DNA data of one or multiple children when data for one parent is provided.
Phased data are combined into a DNA data file for the other parent if only one parent is used for phasing. Additional relatives can be used to improve accuracy of the phasing results.

Use of Results

The results of MapS Phasing are for your personal use and are intended for genealogical research only. They are not intended for medical, diagnostic or health purposes.
The DNA data that is created by MapS Phasing is only an estimate based on a number of assumption which can result in inaccurate results in individual circumstances.
The results should only be used as a starting point for further research.
The user is responsible for ensuring that their use of the phasing results is in accordance with any applicable law, rule, regulation or company policy.
