Any academic or private institution/research group or company looking to serve, or already serving, its local or regional community/institute with bioinformatics tools and databases, or that is proficient in the development of such tools and resources, can apply for the status of Organisational member (Node). Membership is subject to payment of an annual fee.
Membership fees are due annually, payable at the beginning of the year. The annual fee for this type of membership is €500,00. This annual fee includes the reinbursement of travel cost to EMBnet AGM only if the representative of the member institution is elected to an executive position.
Failure to pay the fee in any year will expose the member to suspension of its membership rights and benefits.
