Can I access 1000 Genomes data with Globus Online?

The 1000 Genomes FTP site is available as an end point in the Globus Online system. In order to access the data you need to sign up for an account with Globus via their signup page. You must also install the Globus Connect Personal software and setup a personal endpoint to download the data too.

The 1000 Genomes data is hosted at the EMBL-EBI end point called “Shared EMBL-EBI public endpoint”. Data from our FTP site can then be found under the 1000g directory within the EMBL-EBI public end point.


When you have setup your personal end point you should be able to start a transfer using their web interface.

The Globus website has support for setting up accounts, and installing the globus personal connect software.
