When the sequencing and post-processing of your Illumina Solexa Sequencing statement of work is complete, we make the data available to you protected under a username and password on our sFTP server. We will email you with this username and password when the data is available, and the path to location of your data files on our sFTP server. The data will only remain on the server for 2 weeks, so it is important to retrieve your data from our server in a timely manner.
Our sFTP server is located at sftp://sftp.bcgsc.ca/.
Your account will connect to the pathname of /sftp/<accountname>/. This directory will have an 'incoming' and a 'downloads' sub-directory. Your files will appear in the 'downloads' sub-directory.
We recommend the following sFTP programs to access your data:
On Windows popular clients include WinSCP, WS_FTP and Cyberduck.
On macOS popular clients include Transmit and Cyberduck. The command-line tool 'sftp' also ships with macOS.
On linux the command-line tool sftp is available, if you want to use a graphical user-interface then try FileZilla.
