Raw data, what we also call your Full Data Set, is the sequenced DNA that Helix derived from your saliva sample. These are the A’s, T’s, G’s and C’s that make up your genetic code but does not include interpretations of your data. This is the data that Helix stores for you to use DNA Products in the Helix Store.
If you choose to purchase your raw data, it will be provided to you in a form that you can download. Helix makes the data available as a gVCF file.
What you do with your raw sequencing data is up to you. However, you should always be careful about where, how, and with whom you share your Genetic Information, including your raw sequencing data.
