How to evaluate private full genome sequencing providers?
I was wondering if anyone knows where you could get a full genome sequencing of yourself where they will give you the dump / usb drive / etc and delete all records of it.
I understand how it would be sketch if they didn’t see you in person to verify they are collecting from the same person so I would be ok with that part. I also know that med record laws in the USA require them to keep them for ~7 years, so a non-medical research context or another country without such requirements would be ok. I’m mostly doing this out of personal curiosity, so it’s for research purposes personally vs. medical.
I know casual searches show some companies like sequencing.com or guardiome, but they seem kind of sketch so I don’t know how much to trust them or how to actually evaluate them. Does anyone have any suggestions? I think a illumina novasec 6000 is a six figure machine, so buying one of those is probably not practical too.
