Gigabase Clarification (Same as Gigobyte?)

1

Hello,

So I'm a bit confused on how the terms gigabase (Gb) and gigabyte (GB) overlap or better said, differ. I am trying to determine the amount of current disk space I have available and how to calculate how many gigabases are determined per bases per fastq file.

For example:

Let's say I have 250000GB available and have already processed 215118590880 bases, thus implies 0.1% of my space has been used I can say, or would this be the equivalent of 0.1% of gigabases and not gigobytes?

Thank you in advanced!
