Update: Survey is now closed. Thanks to all the participants. Results are available here.

Eagle Genomics are conducting a second survey of current issues in operational bioinformatics.

We build on the success of last year's survey which polled over 100 worldwide responses from both industry and academia. A report detailing the results of our first survey can be viewed here.  See also Genomeweb's coverage. One of the highlights was that data integration was one of the largest technology concerns for the community, and while both academic and commercial groups relied to a large extent on in-house data centers, they were considering shifting to the cloud in the future.

We are excited this year to see how the field has shifted over the past 12 months!

In appreciation of your support we will enter all participants in a draw for a $100 Amazon voucher.


This should take no longer than 5 minutes.

Survey deadline extended to 20th May.

After the survey closes on 28th March, answers will be summarized and represented as a report freely available from Eagle Genomics' website. This report will be of great relevance to both policy makers and software developers as they plan for the coming decade.

    Here is a blog with the preliminary results from the first survey:

    It has a small presentation to summarize the results, which was presented at a BioGeeks event last year.

    I'm doing a survey on genomic file format standards for my PhD. I could use some help in finding participants. Does anyone have any tips?

    Hi James,

    Have you tried twitter and linkedin bioinformatic groups? Also your department might get you some responses. Don`t make the survey too long as it will put off participants. Keep it short and use Survey Monkey to create it and capture the results.
