The RIC offers a wide range of bioinformatics services, covering genomics, transcriptomics, epigenomics, metagenomics, metabolomics, and proteomics, as well as associated statistical analysis, systems biology, and machine learning applications. Bioinformatics analyses are catered to the aims and requirements of each project individually, following initial service request consultations.

In addition, the RIC is dedicated to supporting grant applications for UIC researchers. In addition to Letters of Support detailing RIC capabilities as they relate to a proposed project, we can also assist with crafting the study design and research strategy, and devising a budget for informatics analysis. Please also consider including a member of the RIC as a Co-Investigator in your application, which can strengthen your application by showing the collaborative involvement and support of an informatics expert.


We have standardized analysis methodologies for many services, such as RNA-seq, but due to the rapidly changing nature of the bioinformatics field and the analysis complexities that are specific to different projects, we are unable to provide static quotes for services. If you would like a quote for your project, please contact us to schedule a free consultation. After reviewing your project and analysis needs we will be able to provide a project plan and budget. Internal rates for customized analysis services is $85/hour.


Consultations are arranged by appointment only. To inquire about bioinformatics services and set up an appointment, please contact us.

Please note, Investigators from Northwestern University, the University of Chicago, and Rush University are provided internal rates as all UIC users. All other users can access services at either external academic or external non-academic rate.
