Our system provides the functionality and community features needed to analyze the large volumes of Next Generation Sequencing (NGS) and Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) data which is generated for a wide range of purposes from disease tracking and animal breeding to medical diagnosis and treatment.

Formats in which you can upload your data:

  • Illumina (with alleles in A/B format)
  • .ab1
  • .scf
  • .BAM / .BAI for NGS data
  • FastA
  • Other supported formats, contact for more info

Multiple options are available for data download:

  • Original format in which it was uploaded
  • Plink
  • Tab delimited
  • Customize your own data through the open API

Data Storage:

  • Stored safely in the cloud supported by our Oracle 11g database
  • Private instances available for storage within your own organization

Software delivery method:

  • Delivered online with no downloading and no updates to pay for

Software architecture for data analysis

  • Open API’s to link to your analytical software packages to your data

Data Visualization:

  • Genome browser with repeat sequences, polymorphisms and coding sequences (see below for a complete list of fully and partially annotated genomes)
  • View your private research data in a secure environment and compare to published research data
  • Visualize NGS data with The Broad Institute’s Integrative Genomics Viewer (IGV), integrated into our services

Collaboration & Curation:

  • View Permission: Invite collaborators to view your private research data
  • Edit Permission: Grant permission to a collaborator to curate your private research data along with you
  • Add or remove collaborators on a moment’s notice – no need to contact us or wait for help!

Browser Specifications:

  • Designed to be compatible with any browser. Tested on Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox & Safari
