Funding for NBIS - successor of BILS

BILS is happy to announce that NBIS (the fusion of BILS, WABI, SILS and SciLifeLab Bioinformatics Platform) was awarded funding from the Swedish Research Council for 2016 and onwards. However, due to the substantial decrease of available funding for national infrastructures, we only get 10 MSEK per year from 1 April, which is half of the year 2015 level and far less than applied for. Consequently, we need to increase the user fees from 1 April, which is in line with the directives from the Swedish Research Council and the universities.

Updated information will be posted at the web sites of BILS and NBIS when the new fees are decided upon later in February.
