Default Typical costs for RNA-Seq analysis

This is kind of the wrong place to post this question given that we are all analysts who do the work (mostly at universities) rather than sending it out. But I would like to know what companies that do analysis that is out-sourced generally charge. Consider an experiment such as this--three biological replicates, each with three samples:

| sample | treatment | replicate |
| t1_A   | Tx1       | A         |
| t2_A   | Tx2       | A         |
| c_A    | control   | A         |
| t1_B   | Tx1       | B         |
| t2_B   | Tx2       | B         |
| c_B    | control   | B         |
| t1_C   | Tx1       | C         |
| t2_C   | Tx2       | C         |
| c_C    | control   | C         |
What do you think an investigator would need to pay to outsource standard analysis:

1. Sample quality
1. Gene expression per sample
1. Cross-sample FDR within replicate
1. Cross-replicate FDR
1. Pathway analysis
1. Standard visualizations (MDS, PCA, MA, heatmap, venn)

Here is one option.

If you are at an academic institution it is very hard to do apple to apple comparisons since most institutions subsidize/discount services/compute time in creative ways so you will not know for sure. But then you are likely looking for a ballpark estimate anyway.
