The Best Way to Store DNA Raw Data

The Best Way to Store DNA Raw Data and Protect Your DNA Test Results

If you have had your full genome sequenced, you have probably wondered what the best way to store DNA raw data is. You could keep it on your computer, but then you need to worry about backing it up and security. You could save it in your cloud storage, but here again, security is a significant concern. What should you do? You don’t want to lose this data, but you also can’t risk the data being compromised.

If you have had your full genome sequenced, you have probably wondered what the best way to store DNA raw data is. You could keep it on your computer, but then you need to worry about backing it up and security.  You could save it in your cloud storage, but here again, security is a significant concern. What should you do? You don’t want to lose this data, but you also can’t risk the data being compromised.

Similarly, what do you do if you have taken many different consumer-grade genetic genealogy tests? Do you trust the storage to the companies that provided the tests? What if they ever go out of business or if you want to analyze the raw DNA with other apps?  

If any of these scenarios apply to you, you need a centralized, confidential DNA data storage bank for your DNA raw data.
