Apply now: Bioinformatics Long-Term Support

One of the national services offered by NBIS/SciLifeLab is Bioinformatics Long-Term support (a.k.a. WABI), providing competence in large-scale data analysis for genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and other technologies. This support has been enabled by funding from the Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation, and is a part of the SciLifeLab & Wallenberg National Program for Data-Driven Life Science. We offer 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. 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 page.

Projects are selected based on their scientific quality. The deadline for the next round of applications to be reviewed by the national evaluation committee is FRIDAY FEBRUARY 3RD, 2023 (24:00).


  1. Please note that the applications should be complemented with a Data Sheet, so that power, replicates, matching of samples and potential batch effects can be properly evaluated.
  2. Please note that the involvement in the data analysis is explicitly stated, so that at least 50% working time devoted to data analysis over 12 months by a scientist in the group of the applicant (or co-applicant) is required for support.

Applications are welcome for projects

Current and past projects are found here.

The decision on which projects will be supported in this call is taken within two months from the application deadline. Typically, about 5-10 projects are granted support in each application round.

For further questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the Bioinformatics Long-Term Support directly at Also note that the NBIS platform provides bioinformatics support in several different tracks as outlined here.

We appreciate your help in spreading this information, and we are looking forward to your application!
