  • Other available analyses:
    • Metagenomics/microbiome (16S rRNA-Seq, shotgun sequencing) Study design, OTU picking, taxonomic abundance identification, alpha and beta diversity evaluation, network analysis
    • CRISPR screens (single, dual screens)
    • Network Analysis: Protein-protein interactions, network propagation, data integration, subnetwork identification
    • Custom Analytical Pipelines & Algorithm Development: Our team is experienced in developing novel algorithms, creating custom analytical pipelines, refactoring code and performing custom integrative analyses.


CCBB data storage/transfer service

CCBB offers data storage on Amazon AWS S3. Rates are offered per project.

  • Projects with total data size < 500 GB:
    • $1000 for first 3 years of storage. This includes one retrieval of data.
    • $500 for every additional 3 years of storage
    • Additional data retrievals cost $360 each (2 hours)
  • Projects with total data size > 500 GB: custom pricing.
    • Alternatively we offer CCBB help with setup of new PI AWS account. Includes data transfer to new account. No ongoing support provided after transfer. $900 (5 hours)

GEO upload:

CCBB offers a GEO data upload service, including preparing required files and metadata

  • If CCBB does not already store the data and metadata: 10-20 hours ($1800-$3600)
  • If CCBB stores data and metadata: $1800 flat rate


Additional Services

  • Custom analytical pipelines/algorithm development
  • Grant consultations
  • Personalized training & tutoring


CTRI Afflilates

UC San Diego Altman Clinical and Translational Research Institute (ACTRI) is pleased to announce the addition of a new Vouchers category to support Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (CCBB) services. This new level of support for CCBB includes three funding tiers, ranging from $500 to $10,000.


Long-Term Consultations and Collaborations
