End User License Agreements

BioInterchange is licensed via End-User License Agreements (EULAs). EULAs renew every month, which has many benefits over upfront payments:

Small Investment
If you only need to work with your data for a few weeks at a time, then only pay for an EULA when you need it!
Upgrade/downgrade between EULAs as your team grows and shrinks. Moved from working with human genomic samples to a model organism? Then simply choose EULAs that are not HIPAA compliant, but which are also more cost effective!
Free Updates
Genomic file format specifications are a moving target. Instead of paying for new versions of BioInterchange when GFF3-, GVF-, VCF-specifications change, just receive updates for free as part of the EULA. Not to spill the beans, but there might be support for genomics formats and more, which are also going to be free updates.
