This tool is geared toward the needs of genetic genealogy but may be helpful for this looking into health-releated uses of WGS tests. The sub-$500, Direct-to-Consumer (DTC), 30x Whole Genome Sequence (WGS) tests are delivered with basic data files and often some health-related reports. This tool serves to fill-in the gap for using those files by linking the WGS files to the genetic genealogy community tools. The tool is designed for the simple, button-push manipulation of WGS files from any source by hiding the scripting of complex bioinformatic tools in the background.

We use the Facebook group Dante Labs and Nebula Genomics Customers for discussions on how to make use of your sub-$500, DTC 30x WGS test results. Bugs, use cases and announcements about this tool happen there. As part of that groups Files section, you will find a number of useful companion documents and tool references. In particular, start with Bioinformatics for Newbies.

User issues, if not brought up in the Facebook group, should be raised in the issues section of this site. This issues section is the preferred location so code bugs, use limitations and suggested improvements can be tracked within the development project.

The tool acronym is WGSE and is pronounced as “wig-see”. We encourage this use in English language onversation.

Further documentation beyond the manual link above is available in our WGS Extract Developer’s Documentation Repository.

Developer’s should visit the main GitHub WGS Extract Developers Code Repository. Development issues, code bugs and limitations should be raised in the development issues section so they are tracked till resolved in a release.

The original, first year, historical release is documented here.

This page is located at https://WGSExtract.github.io/ and serves as the new WWW home for the tool. Once the new version without the reference models is released for distribution here, the historical IP-number site link will go away. The current manual short link of http://bit.ly/36Jdpnq will be redirected to this page as a more permanent link as well. As the need develops, we will create our own Facebook Group for users to raise issues outside of the User Issues Section section already mentioned.
