  2. Open Filters in the left-hand panel, expand REGION then select Chromosome/scaffold: Mito.

  3. Open Attributes in the left-hand panel, expand VARIANT ASSOCIATED INFORMATION, then select Variant Alleles in addition to the pre-selected attributes.

  4. Hit Results in the top left-hand corner to see a preview table. At the top of the results page, select Export all results to, choose Compressed web file (notify by email) then choose xls as the file type. Input your email address then hit Go. You will receive your results by email.
