If you haven't worked with freelancers in your company before or wonder how I usually work -
A typical bioinformatics consulting project might follow these steps:
Send me an email to propose a bioinformatics project
you might like my help with as a freelancer/contractor.
This could e.g. be an NGS pipeline, a PGS data analysis, or consultation on a specific genome informatics question.
We can have a video call or a meeting to discuss the details.
I work out a proposal for you containing a plan of action and an initial estimate.
We will set up a written contract and NDA if required in order to avoid misunderstandings.
DiscussionThroughout the project we stay in contact to discuss the details and any questions you might have.
I work on your project either independently or as part of your team.
Development work is usually done remotely, either on your servers or on my own.
The work includes documentation and testing.
I deliver the results and we discuss any further changes you might need.
Project times are usually estimated by the day, and time is recorded by the hour.
We can continue to work together as partners whenever you need bioinformatics consulting
or development of custom scripts.
