  • ChIP-seq: time needed for data analysis?

    Hi there!
    I am a biologist and have never ever dealt with NGS and bioinformatics before...
    My boss and I plan to do a genome-wide ChIP-seq experiment and a RNA-seq analysis (looking for genes that are regulated by a TF under different culture conditions).
    I tried to find out how long the data analysis of these experiments will take, but couldn't find any answer. Can anyone give me a precise answer, maybe in weeks?

    Thanks a lot,
    Mela

    ChIP-seq analysis should typically go faster than RNA-seq analysis. But it all depends on what you want to do. A "cookie-cutter" ChIP-seq analysis can be done within a day by an experienced bioinformatician, but a more likely timeframe would be a couple of weeks. Again, it depends. You will probably want to combine your results with published data sets and that could take any amount of time.

    Edit: Note that this only refers to the ChIP-seq part, since you specifically asked about it in the title. The analysis of the RNA-seq part will take at least as long and then you need to decide how to combine the information from your experiments, which will also take some time.

      Thank you very much for your answer. so, it all depends on how detailed the data is analyzed?

      My problem is that we want to apply for a grant for this project, and that we have to give a detailed time frame for the project. I have no idea what time is reasonable for the data analysis. Is there kind of a guideline how to calculate the time for data analysis for grant applications?

        I don't know if there are any guidelines, but I would put several months just to be on the safe side.

          It is impossible to predict how long such an analysis will take. Of course it depends on the experience of the bioinformatician. But even more it will depend on how well the question you ask is formulated and how well your experiment covers the question.

            The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
            by seqadmin



            Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

            Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
            by seqadmin


            New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

            A major leap in the field has
