Microsoft Genomics service billing is based on the number of gigabases processed per workflow. The first 10 gigabases are billed at a minimum rate of $-. This is the genome rate. All additional gigabases are billed at the incremental gigabase rate of $- gigabase.

A gigabase is 1 billion (1,00,00,00,000) bases. Gigabases are computed by counting all the bases in the submitted files, then rounding up or down to the nearest whole gigabase.

Unit of measure Features Price
Genomes 1 genome Processing up to first 10 gigabases $-
Incremental bases 1 gigabase Processing of bases beyond first 10 gigabases $-/gigabase

  • If you cancel your workflow before the workflow enters the "in progress" state, you will not be charged. If the workflow enters the "in progress" state and is then cancelled, you will be charged for the quantity of genomes.

  • If the workflow starts and fails due to any error, there will not be any charges. There also will not be any charges if the workflow fails due to expired shared access signature tokens for writing the output file.
