One of the first questions asked by researchers is often: how expensive are you guys?
Well, we cannot answer this question adequately until we get to learn a little about your projects and what you would like accomplished with our help (send us an inquiry now!). But we know why you are asking this question, because - remember, we were academic researchers ourselves?☺
You might be thinking: because AccuraScience is a commercial operation, it must be very expensive.
That is very wrong.
It is true that because our Lead Bioinformaticians (LBs) are highly experienced bioinformatics experts, their rates (per unit time) are higher than those for junior bioinformaticians. However, anyone ever taken a serious research project knows it too well - that in a challenging undertaking, most time is spent - or wasted - in those "wrong turns" that you wish you didn't take after it is over. The truth is, because our LBs are more experienced, they take fewer wrong turns. When they do make mistakes, the mistakes they make are less catastrophic. In the end, our LBs will take much less time to achieve the goals, and end up costing less - rather than more - than less experienced persons.
This is not a new argument. In fact, Steve Jobs made the same observation decades ago. That's why he wanted only "A players" in his team...
And - this is not the only reason why AccuraScience is cost-effective.
In addition to our LBs, we do have a team of technically very skillful junior bioinformatics engineers (BEs) who carry out most of the "routine" analysis work. This is not unlike an academic setting, where faculty members (equivalent to our LBs) advise and direct the projects, and postdoctoral trainees or senior graduate students (equivalent to our BEs) carry out most of the detailed work.
Our BEs are the "A players" in their own category!
Because BEs are less expensive than LBs, by having BEs handling most of the detailed work under LBs' close supervision, we further cut down the cost of our projects, without compromising the quality of the work. The saving is then passed on to the researchers using our services.
