Change in VDL Policy for External Sequence Data Analysis

March 1, 2017

In order to recover costs, genome sequences (for i.e PRRSv, influenza A virus,etc) produced elsewhere and then submitted to the UMN VDL for dendrogram updates and/or comparative analysis to other case or vaccine strains, will incur a charge of $40 per sequence plus a case accession fee beginning March 1, 2017. There will be no fee for the analysis and dendrogram maintenance for any sequences performed at the U of MN VDL. For more information click here or contact the VDL.
