$10

MetaSUB Supporter

You will receive special thanks and a listing as a backer on our website!

$25

Metagenome Mysteries

You will get updated emails about our discoveries and extraordinary features and biochemical functions of extremophiles and urban microbiomes, like those found in the Gowanus Canal and other extreme urban sites.

$199

Digital report

At this level, you will receive a detailed report about one of your submitted samples, which will also receive priority in our queue of samples. A member of the MetaSUB team will sequence the material and send you a report detailing the strains of bacteria, plant, animal and other organisms from your sample. Your samples will receive priority status and be expedited to get your results to you ASAP!

$575

Multi-sample report

**Detailed digital report about three of your samples and Priority Sequencing** At this level, you will receive a detailed report about three of your submitted samples, which will also receive priority in our queue of samples. A member of the MetaSUB team will sequence the material and send you a report detailing the strains of bacteria, plant, animal and other organisms from your sample. Your samples will receive priority status and be expedited to get your results to you ASAP!

$2,000

Laboratory Tour

At this level, two people will be able to come and visit the laboratory where the sample preparation, sequencing, and analysis occur. Two guests will get a tour of the Mason Laboratory in the Belfer Research Building, the computational facilities at the Institute for Computational Biomedicine (ICB), and the sequencing machines and instrumentation that process the samples at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York City. Samples collected can also be entered into the queue for sequencing. A discussion of the impact, applications, and future of genomics will end the day. You will also receive special thanks, a listing as a backer on our website (if desired), and exclusive updates and monthly emails on breakthroughs in the microbiota and metagenomics sphere!

$2,500

MetaSUB Education

At this level, you will support the activities above, but also enable MetaSUB scientists to set up at a conference and perform a characterization of the dynamic metagenomics profile of what 15 people (or similar class size) bring to their conference and how they exchange DNA with each other. You will receive special thanks, a listing as a backer on our website (if desired), and exclusive updates and monthly emails on breakthroughs in the microbiota and metagenomics sphere! Thanks so much!

$5,000

MetaSUB Gold Sponsor

Help the education and outreach work of the group, and come to visit the lab. Also, this puts you or your company as a Gold Sponsor for the Annual MetaSUB Meetings, including logo on website, logo display on the MetaSUB and conference website next to the program, logo on entrance door poster: company logo will be published on an A1 poster next to the entrance of the meetings, and also a brochure on literature table.

$10,000

MetaSUB Platinum Sponsor

MetaSUB Platinum Sponsor Support MetaSUB Education and outreach for summer students, and support for students and visits between MetaSUB member cities, as well as the MetaSUB Annual Meetings (including a chance to speak). Or, you can prioritize the analysis of 96 samples of your choice from the MetaSUB collections. At this level, you will support the activities above, but also create new opportunities for students and MetaSUB scientists to work with each other across the host cities that are working with each other. This directly supports the scientific collaboration, education, sequencing, and analysis of the first-ever global metagenomics map that can be essential to tracking change in urban health, disease, and genetic dynamics. You will receive special thanks, a listing as a backer on our website (if desired), and exclusive updates and monthly emails on breakthroughs in the microbiota and metagenomics sphere!

$15,000

MetaSUB Diamond Sponsor

All of the above, plus full support of MetaSUB Meetings and outreach for summer students and support for students and visits between MetaSUB member cities. ** At this level, you will support the activities above, but also become a key sponsor of the Annual International MetaSUB meetings. You will also have the option to send samples beyond the campaign period, as you collect them. You will also get early access to the dynamic maps of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) markers across our cities. This level would give the next generation of scientists the needed hands-on training, computational acumen, and open career options while creating an unprecedented global map of the world’s genetic dynamics.

$50,000

Custom Sampling Project

You can work with a MetaSUB team in any city, designing a custom research project to examine a metagenomic question of interest. This includes collection, extraction, library preparation, sequencing, and analysis with a walk-through of the data (for at least 96 samples). This also enables you to be a sponsor of the annual meetings, early access to assembly and analysis of the Consortium data, and active roles in the group's efforts.
