Import files directly from BaseSpace into your experiments in Pluto by enabling the BaseSpace integration in your Lab Space.

Once enabled, all members of your organization will see the "Import from BaseSpace" option during the FASTQ file upload step on any sequencing-based experiment type:

In the pop-up window, simply navigate into the appropriate BaseSpace project and select the FASTQs you'd like to import.


Large files stored with sequencing vendors and other third parties are often made available to download via FTP. In this case, you can forward the FTP credentials you receive from a vendor to or submit an FTP import form (contact your Pluto rep for details).


  • Add files to an S3 or GCS bucket

  • Provision read access to Pluto (contact your Pluto rep for details)


  • Create a shared Globus collection containing the files you wish to import

  • Share the collection with

Other cloud storage (Dropbox, Box, Google Drive, etc)
