There are two options for importing from BaseSpace:

  1. Create a project on BaseSpace and share it with - we'll import the files into your experiment

  2. Enable the BaseSpace integration in Pluto to be able to directly import files from BaseSpace at any time (requires an enterprise plan - contact your Pluto rep to have this feature added to your plan).


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

  • Share the collection with

Dropbox and Google Drive


  • Add files to an S3 bucket

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


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 client credentials to and our team will import them into Pluto.
