While BioinfoTools' main priority is developing its own bioinformatics software, customers can enquire about opportunities to have software developed to personal specifications (see, for example the FAQ on on-request software development), have staff taught bioinformatics skills in areas of interest or other general consulting jobs such as reviewing a customer's bioinformatics development plans, studying a particular family of protein's and so forth. Note that this latter category includes bioinformatics research. All requests will be considered, priority is likely to be given to those which match BioinfoTools' own interests (see the FAQ describing the areas of biology BioinfoTools' own products target).

Customers are welcome to contact us either using our enquiry web page or email directly to All enquiries will be treated as confidential.

You will not be charged for initial quotes, discussions about possible courses of action, etc.

On-request software development

Requests to develop bioinformatics software are welcome. These requests can include research-oriented development, where a customer wishes to explore developing new algorithms and tools in some area of bioinformatics.

BioinfoTools will not, in general, consider developing software to communicate with laboratory equipment (e.g. software to drive "robots" or other automated equipment). Please do ask, however, as there may be other solutions to your problem.

Example projects include:


Training in bioinformatics methods and programming is available, including guest lecturing on individual topics (including for academic institutions).


Consulting jobs can include a wide range of possibilities, e.g.
