Next-generation (NGS) and Third-Generation sequencing approaches are ubiquitous in biological, genetic and clinical experimentation. Researchers requiring manipulation and/or evaluation of these data often realize that either specialized guidance or higher-level bioinformatics expertise is needed to expand their capabilities and accomplish their goals.
The GGBC Bioinformatics team at UGA is comprised of experienced research faculty and graduate student interns, who apply best-practice methodologies and employ open-source and custom-built software for data processing, data analysis and visualization options for a wide range of NGS datasets.
Our consultation services are free for input on experimental design and proposal development. Some of the more common bioinformatics workflows, e.g. RNA-Seq, bacterial genome assembly, transcriptome assembly and variant analysis, are priced in an accessible, modular fashion (see Prices below). More complex analyses, e.g. eukaryotic genome assembly, comparative genomics and many customized workflows are priced using hourly rates, since it’s often tough to be accurate with estimates until the work starts.
