At the FGCZ we usually refer to a collaboration as a project whose scientific interest is of great relevance to both the FGCZ and the user.
A collaboration normally implies customized wet lab protocols and/or specific, advanced data analysis in order to produce a joint effort towards a significant advance in life science, often in the form of a joint publication.
In accordance to the FGCZ mission, collaborations are normally applicable only to the Zurich scientific community, however exceptions can be discussed.
The general price scheme for collaborations is based on sharing the cost of the experiments and the work, however precise arrangement will be made on a case-by-case basis.
