The sequencing data will be kept available for download for 30 days.
What types of raw data files are available for research projects?
We offer a variety of raw data formats listed below. Please review the list and be mindful about the file content and size before ordering it:
- VCF (Variant Call Format) is a standard file format storing a list of sequence variants and their genomic positions, no CNV variants. The VCF file does not contain detailed annotations of the variants such as the gene name or population frequency of the variant.
- BAM (Binary sequence Alignment Map) is a standard file format that contains sequence reads mapped to the human reference genome, including base quality and mapping quality scores.
- FASTQ files (sequenced reads) contain unaligned sequence reads with base quality scores.
