Dear Biostars Community,
We are planning to launch a small bioinformatics SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) startup that will develop IT solutions for biomedical research/diagnostics labs and sequencing facilities. Our main focus will be implementation of software and IT infrastructure helping to organize and optimize sequencing-related projects and tasks. For example, we developed an algorithm allowing to optimize sequencing strategy (based on sample multiplexing), which by our estimates can significantly reduce the cost of sequencing benefiting both the end users (researchers, patients, etc) and facilities.
To assess the viability of the start-up, we are now performing a market analysis. So if there are people in Biostars who work(ed) in genomics facilities, we'd appreciate very much any cooperation to get an idea about sequencing volumes that are processed by an average size genomics facility.
In particular, how many samples per year (or month) are sequenced, what type of sequencing (RNAseq, DNAseq, ATACseq, etc) is performed, technology (Illumina, Nanopore, etc) and what species are sequenced.
We can discuss it in this thread, but if there are people willing to share some data, please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or let us know how to get in touch with you.
Thanks in advance for cooperation
