But how do they compare to this advisory board?

Also remarkable, indeed.

I think it depends on project outline and asked question. For software development I would probably favor the latter and for consulting and data interpretation the first.

Overall, I think it is good that academia starts opening for industry. At least a little.

Does anyone has experience with these offers? Do these experts really work with the companies, or are they on the websites for marketing purposes only?

Guys, SNPsaurus is pulling your leg. If you read the text (generic brand video? white space scripting? genome assembly by 'cat'?) and check out the links, you'll see that it's a spoof. The Twitter announcement on April Fool's Day is another clue. And the likelihood of Lior and Manolis collaborating (or Dan and Ewan) is zero.

Sorry to anyone taking it at face value. I meant no offense... I had enjoyed the Paired End Genomics announcement earlier and it was just something that came to mind with the "heads in circles" website design similarity.

What??? I already sent them the $5000 for the triple-peer-review bonus deal. Are you sure it's not for real?

I'm pretty sure that this publication guarantee is contingent upon membership in a particular consortium...

Yes, there is. But scripting in a language that's limited to space, tab, and linefeed would be challenging. And debugging would be a nightmare!

@SNPsaurus: You've got me there!

Next time I will stop being impressed by the nice pictures and read the text!

Correct, it seems they included it in their offerings.

Coming back to my initial question: Does anyone have experience with such offers?
