Big Yotta | Free DNA Data Uploader

Big Yotta Icon

Big Yotta securely uploads files of any size directly into your Sequencing account.

Version 5.3

Big Yotta is free software that you download to your computer. It was developed by 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.

Upload Big DNA Data Files

Big Yotta is a free desktop uploader developed by 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

Upload Raw DNA Data From Any Genetic Test

You can also upload files from companies that perform genotyping DNA tests, such as 23andMeAncestryDNA, 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.

Big Yotta v5.3 is available for Windows, Mac, Linux (deb & rpm), and Headless Linux (deb & rpm)
