Navigate "Genome in a Day" Data on BaseSpace

As many of you have seen, we recently announced a new high-throughput sequencing instrument—the HiSeq 2500—which produces high-quality, high-coverage human genomes in a single day. Yesterday, we released the first public data set for this system on BaseSpace, our cloud-based analysis environment.

All of the details are in the latest BaseSpace blog post. You'll see:

  • Details about sample prep method, build metrics and software
  • Histograms of both SNPs and coverage plots using a prototype genome browser, including chromosome level and base pair level
  • Directional stacked reads displaying variants to reference
  • How to download variants in VCF format

You can get more details and check out the HiSeq 2500 data set here.
