How much are you spending on bioinformatics?

Ever seen an project where there was a budget for data generation but not for data analysis? Budgeting is the best way to avoid being this project. But how much should I budget?

Recently had this conversation on Twitter:

I also found this paper and an update from Frost & Sullivan.

This means that in 2012 we were spending 55% of our budgets on bioinformatics and this term was supposed to rise further to 65%.

Does 10% sound reasonable to you? Please let me know in the comments. Or, it is much more?

How does it scale?

What are the cost drivers?

Please let everyone know in the comments section.
