How Google Genomics can help you
Google Genomics helps the life science community organize the world’s genomic information and make it accessible and useful. Through our extensions to Google Cloud Platform, you can apply the same technologies that power Google Search and Maps to securely store, process, explore, and share large, complex datasets.
Get results sooner
Query the complete genomic information of large research projects in seconds. Process as many genomes and experiments as you like in parallel.
Scale to power any project
Whether you are working with one genome or one million, Google Genomics provides access to the power and flexibility you need to advance your work.
Work with open and interoperable standards
Google Genomics supports open industry standards, including those developed by the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health, so you can share your tools and data with your group, collaborators, or the broader community, if and when you choose.
Protect your patients and your business
Google's infrastructure provides reliable information security that can meet or exceed the requirements of HIPAA and protected health information.
Google Genomics is for ...
Build what you want, not just what you need. using open standards.
Speed up your research, ask new questions and share data in a secure, online environment.
Rest easy knowing that you have the resources you need to meet computational demand, secure data and ensure system reliability.
Organizations using Google Genomics
Autism Speaks MSSNG Project
“The insight and expertise the Google team has brought to the table has been unmatched. Our work with them has been a game-changer for the MSSNG project. Together, we hold the capability of accelerating breakthroughs in understanding the causes and subtypes of autism in ways that can advance diagnosis and treatment as never before.”Read about Autism Speak’s story
“We’re getting 4-second turnaround times on very complex searches with BigQuery, compared to tens of seconds or even minutes previously,” he adds. “That fulfills our need for a scalable system.”Read about DNAstack’s story
