Google Genomics Cookbook

Welcome to the Google Genomics Cookbook on Read the Docs.

The Google Genomics Cookbook on Read the Docs is not actively maintained. For the most up to date documentation, view the official Google Genomics documentation at There you will find information such as What is Google Genomics, Google Genomics fundamentals, and details of the Google Genomics API.

Also note that much of the Genomics v1 API surface has been superseded by Variant Transforms and htsget. See the deprecation notice for more information.

Here on Read the Docs, you will find documentation and tutorials for common tasks including moving, transforming, and analyzing genomic data.

Have feedback or corrections? All improvements to these docs are welcome! You can click on the “Edit on GitHub” link at the top right corner of this page or file an issue.
