How long will it take to get my results?
If you upload existing DNA data, we usually process it within around 30 minutes. If you send in a saliva collection kit, results take 6-10 weeks from when the sample is returned to Gencove.
What technology do you use to sequence my DNA?
If you upload an existing DNA file, we use genotype imputation to ‘fill in’ some of the missing genetic variants that were not directly measured. If you send in a saliva sample, we run an ultra-low-coverage genome sequencing assay on the Illumina platform. The exact sequencing specs are variable across runs, but we’re generally in or near the range suggested by Pasaniuc et al. (2012) of 0.1–0.5x genome coverage.
Will I have access to my raw data?
Do you ship outside the United States?
Unfortunately we do not yet ship outside of the US, though we hope to in the future.
