Bioinformatics services for research use only (RUO) are offered in three levels of data analysis and return, with increasing costs. We also have accredited assays for clinical trials.

Types of RUO analysis:

  • Raw data (Fastq) : we return only the sequence data in Fastq format. Choose if you have a non-standard or non-human reference (e.g. T2T or mouse), or if you have your own bioinformatics team.
  • Aligned sequence : we return sequence aligned to the human reference (hg38) in BAM or CRAM format. Choose if you have specific bioinformatics analysis you want to run that’s distinct from our full packages.
  • Full package: we return all of our standard analysis types for your sequencing choice, which may include: fastqs, BAM/CRAM, somatic variant calls, copy number calls, etc. Note that some sequencing types have less in the full package than others, and you will be charged accordingly. Details for each sequencing type are below.


  • Shallow whole genome: BAM files, ichorCNA results
  • Whole Genome: Pre-processed call ready BAMs, Somatic variants, Structural variants, Copy number variants
  • Exome: Pre-processed call ready BAMs, Somatic variants, Copy number variants
  • Targeted sequencing/Panels: Aligned BAMs, UMI Deduplication, Somatic variants
  • smMIPs: Fastq files
  • cfMeDIP: Fastq files
  • Nanopore epigenome: BAM files
  • Transcriptome: STAR BAM files, RSEM expression, STAR-Fusion fusion calls
  • Nanopore transcriptome: Aligned BAMs

We return data to you in different ways depending on the service requested. Clinical reports are always returned through the Genomics Requisition System. We can provide genomic data via SFTP or rsync download or upload. We also provide data deposition services to EGA or cBioPortal

Finally, we can accept data sequenced elsewhere (“Bring your own data”) for analysis through one of our packaged services. Please contact us for a quote.
