This story has been updated from a version posted Oct. 12 to include additional comments.

This article has been updated to correct the sixth paragraph, which had incorrectly stated that Google Cloud Storage will take over hosting of the SRA from the National Center for Biotechnology Information.

Complete Genomics customers will have access to DNAnexus’ suite of informatics tools, via Amazon web services, that will, among other features, enable them to query multiple human genomes and visualize structural and copy-number variations, and small variants.

DNAnexus will also host human genome datasets that Complete Genomics previously released publicly and will make them available as reference data to its customers.

The deal provides Complete Genomics' customers access to a suite of tools, which will allow them to visualize and query multiple complete human genomes and focus on relevant findings.
