How can I upload my genetic data?

Raw DNA data can be stored in the DNA Vault.

The Lumminary platform supports all genetic data formats. Your data can be from or come in any other format: FASTQ, FASTA, BAM, SAM, VCF etc.

Apart from your own DNA, you can also upload:

DNA of a person for whom you are a legal guardian;

And DNA of a person who has granted you specific authorization to upload their DNA to the Lumminary DNA Vault;

Here’s how to do it:
