Anyone done this yet? The thing that puts me off whole genome or exome sequencing is that there doesn't seem to be the same wealth of analytical tools that are available to 23andme and ftdna users (Gedmatch, interpretome, DIYDodecad etc etc).So (from an ancestry standpoint), would having all of that raw DNA available be of any use at the moment?

It is not yet available to international customers.
I contacted them regarding Y, mtDNA and AIM coverage although I suspect it is a health only product.
You can see a preview of analytics here.

In that case hopefully they'll start offering it to internationals like 23andme did early on (hefty fedex shipping costs but never mind). I also hope that we soon get an ancestry offering too.

Interesting. So, do they permit one to access their results in such a way that it can be sent to third parties for further analysis?

From the FAQ.

Can I download my genomic data?

You can download your genomic data at any point as a VCF (variant call format) file. This large file stores all your gene sequence variations. Once you’ve been sequenced through Genos, this file will be available through the Genome explorer, as part of your Variant Report. We’ve improved our capabilities since Genos Alpha. If you participated in Genos Alpha during 2015 and would like your VCF file, please email [email protected]

Excuse my ignorance, would this serve like the BAM file, whereby it can be submitted to a place like YFULL? Can one gather y-dna/mtdna and find comparative matches?

It is not available in Florida and New York. In live in Florida and wouldn't accept order.

The exome is the parts of your genome containing genes; most of the Y SNPs are outside genes although some are inside (M222 being a notable example of the latter, in the USP9Y gene).

YFull analyse BAM or FASTQ file data. A VCF file is a report from a SNP caller run against BAM or equivalent data so I don't believe they would use it.

A VCF file is more compact and lists variants to the standard reference genome..
A BAM file is more detailed and contains alignment of all reads in your sample against the genome.
You can produce a VCF file from a BAM file but not vice versa.
I understand YFull requires a BAM or FASTQ file.
I would guess that the Exome is for Healthcare only and does not include Y or mtDNA.
I have contacted Genos for clarification.

Thanks. So, this may be primarily for health related information, basically a competitor for 23andMe?

Feedback from Genos
Some coverage of Y in Exome region
No coverage of mtDNA
Limited coverage of AIMs
Working to make product available internationally.

Thank Gerard for spreading words for Genos.

I am the product manager and bioinformatics lead from Genos.

I will be happy to answer all questions about Genos.

Look forward to having your on Genos.

Best,

nice compagny and a very profesional customer support ,I received my result from this company the beginning of this month and it was very interesting and instructive I also submited my raw data to promethease and i received a detailed and interesting personal DNA report for only $5
