Cost calculations for bioinformatics data analyses are based on the required resources. Free of charge is consultancy, in particular if aiming to empower the researcher to perform analyses independently or to support grant applications. The unit is primarily focused to facilitate research at the Medical Faculty of the University of Bonn.

Standard Analysis Packages

We offer standard analysis packages for frequently analyzed data types like RNA-sequencing (3`end single end) and mass spectrometry protemics (TMT, label free and SILAC). For example, a standard RNA-Seq analysis package, which includes alignment, statistics, visualization and enrichment analysis, is offered for 400 Euro. In general, costs are calculated per project. Processing costs for exome sequencing data (variant calling) are calculated per sample.

Please refer to our intranet page for more details on cost and contact us for specific information or cost estimates. We appreciate getting involved in an early phase of your project. The experimental design is important for the analysis and the success of the project .

Grant Applications

We support your grant applications with our expertise on bioinformatics and data analyses and welcome your applications. For example, consider the Bonfor program here in Bonn which regularly accepts submissions and which can cover the funding of core facilities.

Authorship and Acknowledgment

Please be aware that your acknowledgement matters. Irrespective of any cost consider us for authorship and acknowledgement. The following guideline explains which contributions are eligible for an authorship.
