Data Retention Policy

High Throughput Sequencing Data:
Due to the large size and high volume of sequencing data, we have very limited capacity for data retention.

Other Data:
All other types of data (microarray, realtime PCR, Bioanalyzer, etc) will be retained at the GRC for one year.

Sample/Library Retention

If you would like to keep the samples or libraries that have already been analyzed, you need to get them back from us and store in your own freezers. We will keep them in our freezers for one month from the time the data is delivered. After one month, leftover samples and libraries will be discarded.
