One Genome Technology greatly simplifies the process of using the information contained in your DNA. This proprietary Sequencing.com technology allows you to initiate DNA analysis reports with just one click and helps ensure that when your digital genome is analyzed, the results are reliable.
Genetic data files can be confusing because of their sheer number. If you have had whole genome sequencing, you have received your data across eight different files. You may also have chosen to upload genetic data files you obtained from other third party vendors to your Sequencing.com account. With all these files you may wonder which one is the correct one to use for an analysis report.
One Genome takes care of that for you by combining these data files into one. This can be especially helpful if you upload two or more data files from third-party vendors, such as one file from 23andMe and another from Ancestry. One Genome will automatically establish whether the files are from the same person. If they are, it will combine the highest quality data from each file to create a single digital genome.
Having a single digital genome makes it easy for you to run an analysis report. Rather than having to select the correct file from all the files in your account, you simply click on your digital genome and the analysis report application does the rest.
Through advanced statistical algorithms, our bioinformatics team has determined that not all the data you may have received from third-party vendors is of the same quality. Some of this data for some genetic variants is not reliable and may provide false results.
When you upload a data file from a third-party vendor into your Sequencing.com account, One Genome will automatically identify and remove unreliable data points while creating your digital genome. This will help ensure the reliability of any digital genome analysis you choose to run.
One Genome technology is part of your Sequencing.com account. When you order our whole genome sequencing kit or upload your DNA data for a third-party vendor, your single digital genome will appear in your account.
