Google Genomics : A New Way to Explore and Share Your Data

Google has recently launched a new Bioinformatic resource 'Google Genomics'. Google Genomics provides an application-programming interface 'to store, process, explore, and share DNA sequence reads, reference-based alignments, and variant calls, using Google's cloud infrastructure'.

New Features

  • Store: With Google Genomics API, you can store alignments and variant calls for one or several genomes.
  • Process: You can analyze you data in batch by running principal component analysis or Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
  • Explore: You can explore your data by slicing alignments and variants.
  • Share: You can directly share your genomic data with the person you want to
  • How to Use
