Our only allegiance is to you.
Backed by science.
Our genetic testing, analysis and reports meet rigorous quality standards.
We’re different from other DNA tests.
Their DNA test analyzes less than 0.1% of your genome.
They only analyze a small number of diseases.
They rarely add new reports.
After you get your initial results, there’s not much else.
After feeling let down by the lack of actionable insights, their customers frequently upload their DNA data to Sequencing.com so they can benefit from our wide range of DNA apps and reports.
They have a history of providing pharmaceutical companies and law enforcement agencies with access to their customer’s data.
Our clinical-grade 30x Ultimate Genome Sequencing service analyzes 100% of your genome."
We analyze thousands of diseases.
We add new analysis apps and DNA reports every month.
Our tests, reports and DNA apps are designed to provide incredibly useful insights throughout life.
We’re the world’s largest platform for obtaining ongoing value from your DNA. Our tests provide you with direct access to all of our DNA apps and reports.

Sequencing.com was founded in 2013 by Dr. Brandon Colby, MD.
Yes! Sequencing.com, including our DNA analysis apps and reports, are compatible with data from most DNA tests and genome sequencing services.
To get started, visit our Upload Center and select the name of your test provider.
The Ultimate DNA Test is a genotyping test that uses an advanced DNA microarray to obtain data on almost 30 million variants within your genome. This represents around 1% of your genome.
For comparison, 23andMe, Ancestry and most DNA tests obtain data on less than 0.1% of your genome.
The Ultimate DNA Test is the ‘ultimate’ test because it is not only lower in price but also provides far more data than other DNA tests. You’ll be able to discover tremendous insights about yourself using this test including for health, ancestry, nutrition, fitness, beauty and more. This test, however, only provides limited ability to screen for rare diseases.
Our Ultimate Genome Sequencing service is the most powerful and greatest genetic test available. It obtains data on 100% of your genome, which is more than 3 billion variants!
If you want the best, it’s our Ultimate Genome Sequencing Service. The analysis it provides is limitless such as comprehensive assessment for health, medication reactions, rare diseases (including carrier screening for more than 5,000 diseases and conditions), nutrition, fitness, beauty, data exploration and much more. And yes, it also provides a wide range of genealogical insights about your ancestry and heritage.
The data from our Whole Genome Sequencing service is forward compatible. This means that you only need to be sequenced one time. If a new gene is discovered, you won’t need to take another DNA test. Instead, all that is necessary to obtain information about that newly discovered gene is to re-analyze your genome data.
We ship worldwide.
After your test has completed, our wide selection of DNA apps and reports will analyze and transform your DNA data into personalized insights and guidance. You’re in full control because you select which reports you want.
If you’re interested in personalized health, our Health category contains dozens of reports for you to select. For example, Wellness and Longevity, which provides an excellent assessment of genetic risk factors as well as the Rare Disease Screen, which analyzes more than 5,000 rare diseases, conditions and traits.
If you’re more interested in ancestry and data exploration, our Ancestry and Bioinformatics categories also contain dozens of DNA analysis apps and reports. For example, the Genetic Genealogy report includes both ancestry and haplogroup analysis while the Ancestry & Genealogy app provides extensive admixture analysis.
Our Ultimate DNA Test:
Obtains genotypic calls on approximately 30 million variants including all autosomes (chromosomes 1-22) as well as the X, Y (males only) and MT chromosomes. Obtains data on ∙ SNVs/SNPs (single nucleotide variants) ∙ INDELs (insertion deletion variants) Data is aligned to GRCh37 + rCRS MT. Raw DNA data is provided as a single compressed VCF file. DNA reports are available online and most can be downloaded as PDFs.
Our Ultimate Genome Sequencing service:
Obtains data on 3 billion chromosomal coordinates including all autosomes (chromosomes 1-22) as well as the X, Y (males only) and MT chromosomes. Since diploid data is provided, the total amount of data obtained is on approximately 6 billion chromosomal coordinates. Obtains data on ∙ SNVs/SNPs (single nucleotide variants) ∙ INDELs (insertion deletion variants) ∙ CNVs (copy number variations) ∙ SVs (structual variations) ∙ Mitochondrial heteroplasmy ∙ HLA typing (coming soon) Data is aligned to GRCh38.p13 + rCRS MT Raw genome data is provided as ∙ Paired FASTQ ∙ BAM ∙ Genome VCF (SNVs/SNPs + INDELs) ∙ CNV VCF ∙ SV VCF ∙ MITO VCF ∙ HLA VCF (coming soon) DNA reports are available online and most can be downloaded as PDFs.

No, we do not sell or share your data with anyone. Lean more about our commitment to privacy first.
150 bp paired-end read sequencing is performed using next-generation MGI DNBSEQ-T7 genome sequencers.
Raw sequencing data is analyzed using our own specialized bioinformatics pipeline. Under the hood are hyper-optimized versions of BWA-MEM2 and SamTools integrated with proprietary software.
Data is aligned to GRCh38.p13 + rCRS.
Since 2015, Sequencing.com has been building bioinformatics platforms and analysis services for genome sequencing laboratories throughout the world.
These pipelines have used a diverse range of aligners and callers from the obscure to those that are more mainstream, such as DRAGEN, GATK and iSAAC.
We used our years of experience developing genome analysis pipelines for others to build our own pipeline for our whole genome sequencing service.
While others may optimize their pipelines for speed, we optimized our for data quality. So while it may take longer (10 hours to process a single genome), the data quality generated by our pipeline is exceptional.
