Overview

Cloud Genomics charges for data storage. Loading and exporting genomic data is free of charge.

Each Cloud 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.

Other cloud resources, like Compute Engine VMs, Cloud Storage, and BigQuery, are billed at the standard rates.

Cloud Genomics is priced according to the data volume used in a calendar month:

Resource Price per GB
Genomics storage $0.022

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.

Pricing examples

  • 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.
