Thank you, Kt8, I didn't know about the possibility of a fee waiver in PLOS ONE. Our preliminary findings are encouraging (see this Lab Note: https://experiment.com/u/dIeFDw). If they hold up, we will publish results later this year.

When I first wrote about open access publishing in 2012, I found the average publishing cost was $2,500 (see http://www.jopm.org/opinion/commentary/2012/07/18/the-impact-of-open-access-and-social-media-on-scientific-research/). Also, I have found that getting accepted to PeerJ or PLOS ONE can be very challenging for non-academic researchers. If we are accepted to a lower-cost, peer-reviewed open access journal, we will use the additional funds for more analysis time using VarSeq. Thank you for your comments!

Hi Pietro, I will be adding a stretch goal shortly. Additional $$ will be used for publication fees in an open access journal. Keep your eye out for an updated Lab Note!
