Access our services and support

We offer researchers a wide range of support in bioinformatics and statistics - from short term consultancy to long term project support, sequencing and training.

We offer you a one-hour consultation meeting free of charge. During this meeting, you can expect feedback about your project plan and a discussion about how we can support you.

To book a meeting, contact us via email:

Every week we arrange a local zoom-in consultancy session. If you want to discuss your project, know what tool to use or what kind of analyses fit your data best, among others, join us!

         Every Thursday

         Where:                    Zoom room (click the link)

          Time:                       10.00 - 11:00

Sequencing: We manage the Illumina and Ion Torrent platforms and we provide sequencing for:

  • Whole genome sequencing
  • mRNA sequencing
  • Total RNA sequencing
  • Sequencing readymade DNA/cDNA pooled libraries 

NGS access service: Perform your own analyses using our equipment:

  • DNA concentration measurements (Qubit)
  • Automated electrophoresis for DNA and RNA (Tapestation)
  • Fragmentation of DNA and chromatin (Covaris)
  • Sequencing (MiSeq and NextSeq)

We offer a wide range of statistical and bioinformatics services that will be useful at various stages of your research project, from planning and project design to analyses and visualization.

An initial meeting is always free of charge. All subsequent work or scientific advice will be charged at 550 SEK per hour.

We offer the same content of our PhD courses as a workshop for non-PhD students. The workshop runs simultaneously with the PhD course and has a registration fee of 2000 SEK.

We also can arrange a workshop on a specific topic. The cost depends on the number of participants, length of the workshop and trainers needed.

Acknowledging our contributions to your research

If you are presenting the results from any of the provided analysis in a paper, at a workshop or a conference, we require you to acknowledge us.

  • We encourage our staff to be co-authors when it is merited in accordance with the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) guidelines on authorship. If applicable, please include:

    BDC_expert’s_name, Bioinformatics and Data Centre, Core Facilities, Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
  • In other cases, include the name of the expert that handled your project under the Acknowledgments, for example:

    We thank BDC_expert’s_name from the Bioinformatics and Data Centre at the Sahlgrenska Academy for statistical/bioinformatics support/analyses

    Data analysis was performed by BDC_expert’s_name from the Bioinformatics and Data Centre at the Sahlgrenska Academy

Publications enable us to apply for more funds to keep a subsidized price therefore, we require you to inform us when your paper is accepted for publication by sending an e-mail to or the corresponding expert.

BDC will always charge you for the analyses, and the price of these analyses is not related to the discussion about authorship
