Standard Bioinformatics Services Cost

From Bioinformatics Core Wiki

The prices provided below are for guidance only. They are estimated based on our experience and the CRG officially established cost of the manual work and computing hours, effective as of January 1, 2018. VAT is not included. (+ denotes the minimum cost)
