Freely available data supporting next generation of human genetic research
Date:6/21/2010

approximately two per cent of the genome that is composed of protein-coding genes. This Project provided unprecedented sample size to learn about the patterns of rare variation in the human population.

Data analysis and access and first major release of biomedical data on the Amazon Web Services Cloud

The amount of data produced by the 1000 Genomes Project is unprecedented in biomedical research. Currently, the total size of the datasets is over 50 terabytes, or 50,000 gigabytes. That corresponds to almost eight trillion DNA base pairs, or terabases, of sequence data. Early in the project, merely copying the vast quantities of data between the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI) in the UK and National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the US National Library of Medicine in the US consumed large fractions of both groups' capacity on the Internet for several days.

Researchers can freely access the 1000 Genomes Project pilot data through the 1000 Genomes web site, www.1000genomes.org. Researchers can download the data from NCBI at: ftp://ftp-trace.ncbi.nih.gov/1000genomes/ or from the EBI at: ftp://ftp.1000genomes.ebi.ac.uk/.

For many researchers and institutions, especially those who lack the computer and analytical power to study such a massive data set, an economical option is being tested to access and analyze the pilot data. The pilot datasets of the 1000 Genomes Project (7.3 terabytes of data) are now available as a public dataset through Amazon Web Services (AWS) and integrated into the company's Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2 and Simple Storage Service, S3). As new data become available and usage of this data increase on AWS, it is anticipated that additional data sets will be available in AWS.
