The UGC offers a variety of bioinformatics services.  Standard processing for DNA sequencing data includes analysis using the UGC’s validated pipelines for alignment and variant calling and additional tools like Picard and internally developed QC software to track quality metrics and detect sample contamination and sample swaps.  Additionally, the UGC bioinformatics team has implemented a variety of analysis tools for structural variant (SV) calling, copy number variation (CNV), loss of heterozygosity (LOH) and RNA-seq analysis. For each sample sequenced, we can return fastq, bam, and vcf files.  Custom analyses are considered.

UGC Data Management

 

Data storage

Data will be stored by UGC up to 30 days after the data sent back. After 30 days the data will be automatically removed from UGC storage unless users request for long-term storage with extra cost. We will be unable to provide any data back once the data is removed from our server.

 

Data delivery

Download link: by default. It is convenient and secure.

Hard-Drive: user can bring a hard drive and pick it up after the data transferring.
