Discontinuation of the Phylos Plant Sex Test and Genotype Test
The Phylos Plant Sex Test and Genotype Test are no longer accepted for processing as of September 30, 2021. Full customer account access, sex test results, and genotype reports will all remain available through our website for the foreseeable future.
Due to the complexity of the 3D Galaxy data visualization tool and the discontinuation of testing services and related resources, the interactive Phylos Galaxy is no longer available to explore. For an example of the interactive 3D Galaxy, check out our videos on YouTube.
Final Galaxy dataset upload
Our latest (and last) Galaxy public dataset has been published in the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) archives. The European Variation Archive (EVA) is an open-access database of all types of genetic variation data from all species.
We believe the foundational knowledge of the cannabis genome can be advanced and better understood by sharing this incredible data we have collected for the Galaxy. To download all public Phylos-collected genotype data, visit EBI’s archive.

Thank you to our customers around the globe for trusting in our testing services. We understand that the decision to test and with whom you test is an important decision to make every season.
When COVID-19 hit, we found that our products and services were affected in ways we could not anticipate or control: including increasing lab supply costs and supply shortages with unpredictable delivery dates. Today, even though COVID-19 public health conditions are improving, increasing lab supply costs and shortages are continuing.
We also saw market conditions change this past year: Increased demand for feminized seeds has resulted in a decrease in demand for sex testing services.
After careful consideration of how we can best serve our customers, we decided to focus our efforts on optimizing seed-grown varieties and continuing to build knowledge of the cannabis genome with our research and development program. Unfortunately, this means that the 2021 season was our last year to offer testing services.
If you are a testing customer and have questions, we are here for you and are happy to walk you through this transition. Contact our Customer Support Team at 503-206-6599 EXT 1 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
