Big Yotta is free software that you download to your computer. It was developed by Sequencing.com so that you can securely upload DNA data files of any size into your Sequencing account. This includes files that cannot be uploaded using a web browser, such as the extremely large fastq and bam files from whole-genome sequencing.
Big Yotta is a free desktop uploader developed by Sequencing.com to make it easy to upload big DNA data files. It allows you to:
upload files of any size, including massive FASTQ, FASTA, BAM, SAM, CRAM, and genome VCF files
files upload quickly due to advanced upload technology
upload genome sequencing files from test providers and laboratories
Upload files from Dante Labs, Nebula Genomics, Full Genomes, Illumina, Macrogen, Fulgent, and WuXi NextCODE
- Note: Instead of using Big Yotta, you can now automatically import your Dante Labs and Nebula Genomics files using the Upload Center (simply click the name of your test provider to start the import)
upload one file, multiple files, and entire folders
import files via FTP and URL
import files of any size from many cloud storage providers including Dropbox, Google Drive, Google Cloud, Amazon (AWS), Azure, One Drive and many others
- Cloud files must be configured to be publicly accessible (and not require any sign in) before the cloud file download link can be used to import the file into your Sequencing account
You can also upload files from companies that perform genotyping DNA tests, such as 23andMe, AncestryDNA, and MyHeritage. While Big Yotta can be used, the data files from these test providers are also small enough to upload using the ‘Upload From Computer’ option in the Upload Center.
Big Yotta may also be convenient if you have a large number of files to upload since you can easily drag and drop an unlimited number of files into Big Yotta.
