Google Genomics charges for data storage. Loading and exporting genomic data are free of charge.
Each Google Genomics project can use a fixed quantity of resources for free, defined by a set of quotas.If you need more resources, you can enable billing and link to a credit card or bank account for automatic billing, or contact sales to sign a commercial agreement for offline billing. A bill is sent out at the beginning of each month for the previous month’s usage.
Prices are effective Oct 1, 2014.
Resource billing rates
|Resource||Unit||Unit cost (in US$)|
|Genomics storage*||Gigabytes per month||$0.022|
* For example, a 30x human whole genome sequence will be billed at around $25 per year. A typical 100 GB BAM file imported into the reads API will be measured as roughly 100 GB of data. Genomics storage is based on a standardized compression ratio of the input data, in order to avoid variability caused by differences in the compression of input files
