Genifx operates in research collaboration model. The model is borrowed from the open-source software repository GitHub ( As long as a researcher shares data with other researchers at UAB, the facility is free. This means that you control who can publish results derived from the analysis of your data and can see who downloaded it, but you cannot control the access.

We understand the need for keeping some data private. This can be done by paying for the service. The price is determined case by case basis and dictated by the market price of the hardware.
