FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is your standard bioinformatics research pricing?
The bioinformatics pricing differs from project to project. The initial consultation is done free of cost. Our standard bioinformatics pricing can be found on the Pricing page.
How does ABiL approach a project?
We adopt an iterative approach for each of our projects and we like to closely involve our clients to ensure their needs are met. To assure protection of intellectual property, a non-disclosure agreement is formalized between the parties. We then draft a proposal detailing the client's needs, our bioinformatics approach to the project, along with the timeline and expected cost. Upon client's approval of the proposal and acceptance of the contractual agreement, ABiL formally begins the project. We provide regular updates to the project and adjust the approach of the ongoing project as needed. On completion of the project, a detailed report of the work performed and publication quality figures are provided back to the client. Any additional support for manuscript preparation is also provided.
