We only retain the genetic data required to provide your sex test results, populate your genotype report, and to place your variety in the Phylos Galaxy. Every customer retains ownership and ownership rights in the samples they submit, including:

  • The genetic data generated from the tests that is used to create a genotype report;

  • The plants and any dead plant matter submitted; and

  • Any current or future rights you may have in plant protection of your varieties.

With your permission, we may publish your data to a public repository. Once data is published to the public repository, anyone can access, view, and download the data. For example, data is used by scientists for research purposes, such as performing population genetics studies and improving understanding of the cannabis genome. 

Please refer to our Data Policy for more information.

The Phylos Plant Sex Test and Genotype Test are no longer accepted for processing as of September 30, 2021. The Phylos Galaxy, full customer account access, sex test results, and genotype reports will all remain available through our website for the foreseeable future. We recommend printing and downloading your reports and taking screenshots (Windows, Mac, and Chromebook) of your constellations if you would like to retain visual representations of your variety in the Galaxy. Learn more about the discontinuation of the Phylos Plant Sex Test and Genotype Test.
