Google Brain Genomics Sequencing Dataset for Benchmarking and Development

bioinformatics fastq genetic genomic life sciences long read sequencing short read sequencing whole exome sequencing whole genome sequencing


To facilitate benchmarking and development, the Google Brain group has sequenced 9 human samples covering the Genome in a Bottle truth sets on different sequencing instruments, sequencing modalities (Illumina short read and Pacific BioSciences long read), sample preparation protocols, and for whole genome and whole exome capture. The original source of these data are gs://google-brain-genomics-public.

  • Description
    FASTQ files for nine human samples comprising three parent-child trios at 40X 30X, and 20X coverage for whole genome sequencing and 100X, 75X, and 50X coverage for whole exome sequencing. Four samples are also sequenced with PacBio HiFi as described in Baid et al 2020. Note that this S3 bucket only contains FASTQ files; BAM and VCF files are available at gs://google-brain-genomics-public.
