Getting started

The getting started process

 

To work with us please send an unbinding project request by clicking here: Apply for a new project.

PRI first and foremost supports academic and non-academic research groups from the Nordic countries. 

We will then evaluate the project according to its scope, as well as the capacity of the infrastructure to run the project. You will then be contacted by one of our staff members for a consultancy meeting, where we can discuss the experimental design and technical details.

 

 

Once we have accepted your project you can register your project information here.

Please note that every researcher involved in a project needs to be registered, to ensure a proper information flow and to follow the grant requirements of our main funding provider (the NNF). 

 

 

 

 

Once the project is registered you can submit a service request in the project management system BookitLab.

To submit a new request, navigate to the REQUEST SERVICES section on the left menu and select ‘Sample requests’. The screen that appears shows a history of all previous requests. Select the blue button (‘+ New Order’) on the top right to start a new service request.

Select the service type, and project the request is associated with. While the project can be changed at a later stage, service type and user information will remain unchangeable. Therefore, requests should always be submitted by the person leading the experiment, as he/she will receive all communication related to the request.

 

 

Once your request is checked and approved its status changes to ‘submitted’, and you can bring your samples. For sample handover, please contact our Proteomics Service Manager (paola.pisano@pri.ku.dk) beforehand to arrange for a time.

Our wet lab is located on the first floor of building in Panum (10.1.5). Entering the main Panum entrance, take the big stairs up and go to the right until you enter the old part of Panum. Pass the big auditorium with the colorful wall painting on its right and you will find signs guiding you to the lab.

Note that all open questions regarding the analysis should be solved before handing in the samples, as there is usually not much time to discuss projects in that moment.

 

 

Results are shared via the Box data cloud. Once the results of the first project are available every user in a project receives a link, and results can directly be accessed online.

For recurrent requests within the same project, data will be uploaded to Box as they are generated. You will therefore see a request folder, even, if the results of the data analysis are not available. Once the data analysis is completed you receive a notification via Bookitlab. At that point, you can find the ‘bioinformatics’ folder including the results.

For regular usage, we recommend installing Box drive, allowing direct access to the result files via the file browser. Box drive can also be used to download the data via the sync function for individual folders (‘right-click – make available offline’). Please note that this requires enough space on the primary hard disk of the computer, as the box folder cannot be changed to another location.
