Import Genome Data From Dante Labs


Download your Dante Labs data and upload the data to

  1. Sign in to your Dante Labs account.
  2. Download the files for each of your profiles.
    • While we recommend obtaining all of your DNA data files, due to their size this can take a while. You may want to start with your FASTQ files as these are the most important to obtain.
    • If FASTQ files are not available, the next best file is the BAM file.
    • If your BAM file cannot be obtained then please obtain your VCF files.
      • The file ending in .snp.vcf.gz is the best VCF to use with apps in our DNA App Store.
  3. Download and sign into Big Yotta, our secure uploader for large files.
    • Sign in using your account credentials.

Dante Labs Download Problems

We have received reports that some of Dante Labs' customers have encountered errors when attempting to download their raw genome files from their Dante Labs' account. Unfortunately, Dante appears to have blocked the ability of customers to download FASTQ and BAM genome sequencing files.

The update we've received is that Dante Labs does plan to re-enable downloads at some time in the future but that downloading files may require paying a fee. They have not provided a time-frame for when they plan to re-enable downloads.

The good news is that most customers can still download the VCFs files from their Dante Labs account. Our system is compatible with these files and you can use the .snp-indel.vcf.gz file with all of the apps in our DNA App Store.

To learn more about Dante Lab's download issues, please see our Dante Labs review, which we'll continue to update on a regular basis.
