Fees Services

Here are some of the services we can provide:

  • Omics data analysis (genomics, transcriptomics, metagenomics, comparative genomics)
  • Sequence Analysis (assembly and SNP analysis).
  • Pathway analysis.
  • Metabolic reconstruction.
  • Customized analysis pipeline.
  • Experimental Design Assistance.
  • Access Database constructions.
  • Training.

There are different ways in which we can help you:

  • Project Data Analysis. After the initial meeting to understand the projects and its informatics needs, we will develop a plan to address each need with its timeline. Along the way, we will provide reports for the progress of each step.
  • Consultation/Training. There are great amounts of bioinformatics resources out there. This means some researchers like to perform their own analysis. All the choices can sometimes be overwhelming. To that end, we can help along the way. We will be happy to discuss what tools might best fit your project.
  • Letter of support or any other form of support for your grants.

If CBBC makes a significant contribution to a research project, we request that you include the contributing personnel as a co-author in all the resulting publications. A significant contribution may be:

  • Producing analysis pipeline pertaining to a project.
  • Conceptualization, design, analysis, visualization, and interpretation of the data.
  • Addressing the biological question(s) in the manuscript.
  • Writing or editing significant portions of the manuscript.
Type of serviceInternal (OU affiliated) fee/hourExternal fee/hour
Customized Biocomputing and Bioinformatics Services (scripts, informatics pipeline)$20.00$80.00
Bioinformatics training$20.00$100.00

Consultation is free.

The details will be discussed at the start of each project. A memorandum of understanding (MOU) will be drafted after the details are discussed.

Please note that payment for the Core expenses for data analysis and authorship are not mutually exclusive. The recovery of the core expenses through the recharge system does not exclude the possibility for authorship for the Core personnel. Similarly, authorship does not substitute for payment of the Core expenses for services rendered.

Therefore, we request co-authorship, and will assist with manuscript preparation, if we have developed pipelines, scripts, participated in experiment design planning, or have contributed substantially to a biological question addressed in a manuscript (see ABRF’s Authorship Guidelines).

We ask that, at minimum, you acknowledge us in a publication to which we have any contribution.
