CIPRES Subscriptions

Subscription services will begin January 18, 2021. Your ability to create an account and access existing data will not be affected.

The US National Science Foundation and the US National Institutes of Health have supported the costs of operating CIPRES for the past 10 years, but that funding is ending. These organizations have  instructed us to recover our operating costs from users. CIPRES operations are now dependent individual subscriptions. The cost of a subscription is modest, is a good value, and helps ensure CIPRES remains available for years to come. The subscription levels available and costs are listed below. If you have further questions about subscribing, please see our FAQ page.
