The Best Way to Store DNA Raw Data

Image for protecting raw dna data such as from whole genome sequencing or any genetic testing including 23andMe, 23me, Ancestry, MyHeritage, MyHeritageDNA, FamilyTreeDNA, LivingDNA, miaDNA, 24Genetics, tellmeGen, Vitagene, Dante Labs, Illumina and Gedmatch.

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.

 

Using Sequencing.com to Store DNA

Sequening.com offers its users that very type of storage. That’s right, Sequencing.com can act as one central storage location for all of your genetic data. We accept VCF, BAM, and FASTQ files from any whole genome sequencing lab such as Macrogen, GeneDx, WuXi, or BGI. We also accept DNA data files from consumer companies such as 23andMe, Ancestry, Genes for Good, MyHeritage, Family Tree DNA, Living DNA, HomeDNA, Vitagene, Dante Labs, or Helix.

This is possible due to Sequencing.com’s Universal Data Compatibility, which allows you to store your genetic data from any and all genetic tests, which is something you won’t find anywhere else. Furthermore, it is secure, confidential and free!
