Apply now for bioinformatics long-term support

Bioinformatics Long-term support (WABI) offers a senior bioinformatician to work in your project for up to 500 hours. The support is fully subsidized and free of charge, but extensive hands-on involvement is required by the applying research groups. Note that a part of this call will focus on early involvement in integrative omics projects, see below.

To apply for support, you need to submit a small application about your project. More information along with the “Application form” is found at the online submission here:

Projects are selected based on their scientific quality, and the deadline for the next round of applications to be reviewed by the national evaluation committee is FRIDAY OCTOBER 28th, 2016 (24:00).

Applications are welcome for projects

* anywhere in Sweden

* any type of NGS application as well as other large-scale omics

* any bioinformatics skills

The decision on what projects get support in this call will be taken in December 2016. Typically, about 5-10 projects are granted support in each application round.

In addition to the regular projects, we also aim to grant support to an additional 1-3 projects with a clear focus on data integration, which can be subject to more extensive method development support. Beside scientific merits, these projects preferably combine multiple omics technologies and include methodological challenges of general interest.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Bioinformatics Long-term Support directly at bioinformatics_wabi@localhost.

More information:

As of April 2016, the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden ( forms the bioinformatics platform at SciLifeLab. NBIS is a distributed national research infrastructure providing state-of-the-art bioinformatics to the Swedish life science researchers community. NBIS is also the Swedish contact point to the European infrastructure for biological information (ELIXIR).
