I'm looking for raw human ngs data to practice in bioinformatics. Better if it is from different machines (illumina, roche, pacsbio, etc). Panels, exomes and genomes. Anyone knows something?

    $\begingroup$ Yeah. Look at GEO and SRA.. You'll find tons of data. $\endgroup$ – WYSIWYG Dec 13 '15 at 18:09
  • $\begingroup$ You can also find it in the supplemental data sections of papers you're interested in. $\endgroup$ – MattDMo Dec 13 '15 at 18:52
  • $\begingroup$ yes, thank you. But there I found mostly trimmed and refined data. I'm looking for very raw data, meaning as the files exit from the sequencer. I want to practice with bioinformatics and so I need file as much raw as I can obtain. $\endgroup$ – Marco Vismara Dec 14 '15 at 8:21
  • $\begingroup$ Like fastq formatted files originating from the different technologies... on NCBI/EBI there are files, but their identifier is not the original from the machines. $\endgroup$ – Marco Vismara Dec 14 '15 at 12:04
  • $\begingroup$ This question was asked somewhere and nicely answered. You might find lot of examples of .bam files. see biostars.org/p/45320 $\endgroup$ – Ottiero Ottieri Jun 7 '16 at 21:45

At least PacBio do provide some example datasets on their DevNet resource. You should be able to get a lot of different Illumina data from the public data in BaseSpace. I am not sure where to look for official samples from Roche 454, but I wouldn't bother too much as it is discontinued anyway. Rather go for MinIon or IonTorrent data, if you want more.
