Support Team

The IDM and CIDRI-Africa have appointed dedicated Bioinformaticians to assist in data analysis. Ad hoc requests (i.e. < 8 hours required) will be handled on a case-by-case basis, with queries addressed either via email or alternatively during our open-door consulting hours.

Requests for support should be submitted by completing a services request form. If possible, please submit requests during the planning stages of your project – this will allow us to start developing data analysis pipelines tailored to your needs while you generate the data. IDM bioinformatics support will follow a collaborative model where our role would be scientific and not purely technical. Such collaboration should apply the ICMJE guidelines regarding authorship.
