Authorship and acknowledgments are important indicators of our effort and success, and it enables us to obtain further financial support so we may continue to serve you better. We understand that each project is different and that as a result, the level of contribution will differ as well. If a core bioinformatician has made significant contributions to your presentation or publication, please consider adding them as a co-author, or giving them a shoutout in the appropriate acknowledgement section. But ultimately, both and either are optional, as it is not a requirement for using our services. Thank you!
