Reason #3: Top-level expertise possessed by our bioinformaticians
Let's face it: it is not a secret that strong bioinformatics expertise is in short supply.
A paradigm shift has taken place in biomedical research in the past decade, due to the unprecedented rates of data generation, thanking largely to rapid advances of new technologies. Now, bioinformatics skills have become essential in successful undertaking of many biomedical projects. The truth is, however, most principal investigators (PIs) are trained experimental scientists unfamiliar with high-throughput data analysis. They need to enlist help from bioinformatics experts.
The demand is so high, that many bioinformatics experts are over-booked. Then, the less qualified (some are biology majors with a B.S. and a few weeks of bioinformatics training) come to play. They call themselves "bioinformaticians" and become helpers. Before the researchers realize it, their funding has been drained, and progress of their projects severely delayed.
These are not isolated stories. In fact, these are what researchers have told us time after time again.
Sure enough, over time the research community will see a fix to the problem of shortage in bioinformatics expertise. At AccuraScience, we like to see our operation as part of this fix: we have assembled a cluster of very strong bioinformatics experts with complementary yet related areas of expertise (see their profiles at this page), jointly covering a wide spectrum of domains and problems (see this page for more), and offered it to researchers as fee-based services.
We want researchers to consider us as the "tough nut crackers". Indeed, many approach us after they have tried other options (most frequently using local bioinformaticians in collaborative labs or a local core facility) which have not worked. The good number of strong experts in our team means that we can offer a much wider range of solutions (see this page) than any single bioinformatician - even he or she is a top bioinformatics expert. What's more amazing is, because our LB team has reached a "critical mass", we can have more done at even lower cost. See this page for further discussion on our cost-effectiveness.
