.USEQ File Extension

A .USEQ file is a USeq Genome Data File, created by Huntsman Cancer Institute.

Open with Integrated Genome Browser. Available for Linux, Windows, and Mac.

What is a .USEQ file?

The .USEQ file extension is associated with a USeq Genome Data File. This type of file is important in the fields of science and health research because it holds information about genomes. Genomes are all the DNA in an organism, including its genes. The data inside a .USEQ file includes details about chromosomes (the structures that hold DNA), strands (the two sides of the DNA double helix), and slice observation data, which are specific pieces of the genome being studied.

.USEQ files are compressed using Zip compression. This means that the data inside them is squeezed into a smaller size so that these large genome datasets can be shared and downloaded more easily. This compression is helpful because genomic data can be very large and take up a lot of computer storage space.

To open a .USEQ file, you would use a program called the Integrated Genome Browser. This program is specifically designed to view and analyze genomic data. It allows scientists and researchers to look at the detailed information contained in the .USEQ file in a way that is understandable and useful for their research. The Integrated Genome Browser can open these files, decompress them, and display the genomic data in a visual format, making it easier to study and interpret the information.


Our goal is to help people find the most up-to-date information about file extensions for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android and iOS. We researched over 10,000 file extensions and their respective programs that open those files. If you want to suggest edits or updates about .USEQ file formats, example files, or programs that are compatible. Please contact us.
