Services Charges and Options


Service Charges

Most bioinformatics analyses are unique so service charge vary depending on the time and resources required to manage your particular project. 
For budgeting purpose, after we learn of your needs, we will provide a quotation of estimated cost to you promptly.

As an academic, non-profit-making core facility, we offer a highly competitive price as compared to many other service providers.

*IMPORTANT:* To qualify for HKU pricing, the investigator must be a regular employee of HKU AND payment must be made from an internal HKU financial account that qualifies for internal transfer; otherwise non-HKU price will be charged to cover the 15% finance charges levied by the HKU Finance Office for incoming external funding.

Service Options

At CGS, the bioinformatics team works closely with the NGS laboratory team to provide various service options to suit your needs.
With the exception of sequencing run service, all sequencing data are QC prior to being released to users.

For more details about the specific deliverables according to applications, please review Data Deliverables section.
