HealthOmics Storage - AWS HealthOmics

HealthOmics Storage

With HealthOmics Storage, you can create a sequence or reference store, import a reference genome, and import genomics files. After you create your stores and import your genomic data, you can access and analyze your sequence data.

Create a reference store

To create a reference store
  1. Open the HealthOmics console https://console.aws.amazon.com/omics/.

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Get started with HealthOmics.

  3. Choose Reference genomes from the Genomics data storage options.

  4. You can either choose a previously imported reference genome or import a new one. If you haven't imported a reference genome,choose Import reference genome in the top right.

  5. On the Create reference genome import job page, choose either the Quick create or Manual create option to create a reference store, and then provide the following information.

    • Reference genome name - A unique name for this store.

    • Description (optional) - A description of this reference store.

    • IAM Role - Select a role with access to your reference genome.

    • Reference from Amazon S3 - Select your reference sequence file in an Amazon S3 bucket.

    • Tags (optional) - Provide up to 50 tags for this reference store.

Create a sequence store

To create a sequence store
  1. Open the HealthOmics console https://console.aws.amazon.com/omics/.

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Sequence stores.

  3. On the Create sequence store page, provide the following information

    • Sequence store name - A unique name for this store.

    • Description (optional) - A description of this sequence store.

    • Data Encryption - Select whether you want data encryption to be owned and managed by AWS or to use a customer managed CMK.

    • Tags (optional) - Provide up to 50 tags for this sequence store.

Import genomics files

To import a genomics file
  1. Open the HealthOmics console https://console.aws.amazon.com/omics/.

  2. In the left navigation pane, choose Sequence stores.

  3. On the Sequence stores page, choose the sequence store that you want to import your files into.

  4. On the individual sequence store page, choose Import genomic files.

  5. On the Specify import details page, provide the following information

    • IAM role - The IAM role that can access the genomic files on Amazon S3.

    • Reference genome - The reference genome for this genomics data.

  6. On the Specify import manifest page, specify the following information Manifest file. The manifest file is a JSON or YAML file that describes essential information of your genomics data. For information about the manifest file, see Sequence store imports.

  7. Click Create import job.
