The Altruist Endeavor is a philanthropic initiative of Sequencing.com that applies crowdsourcing to genomics. This is accomplished by creating a publically accessible anonymous database of genetic data. The database is open-source so that software developers can create their own unique ways of searching and accessing the data.
The more data researchers have to study, the greater the power of their research. With more robust research comes a greater likelihood of significant advances that will benefit us all.
The Altruist™ Endeavor is composed of two initiatives:
Storage is free, unlimited and private. You own your genetic data - we keep it safe and never sell or share it.

- Upload files smaller than 100 MB
- Import files of any size from AWS, Google Cloud, Google Drive, Azure, Dropbox, etc.
If you have many files or if your files are large and stored on your computer or server:
