Projects

This study builds on the ELIXIR implementation study started in February 2017 as a collaboration between EMBL-EBI and ELIXIR Germany. The initial study aimed at developing open, robust, scalable and reproducible proteomics data analysis workflows based on OpenMS, directly connected to the PRIDE database and deploying these pipelines in the EMBL-EBI "Embassy Cloud" as a proof of concept.

This study aims to integrate the high quality apple reference genome and its associated catalogue of genetic diversity, representing the most widely cultivated apple varieties around the world. Apple will be used as a case study for managing the growing number of ‘multi-genome’ fruit projects, testing and where necessary, improving tools to streamline data import and exchange between ELIXIR supported resources, specifically BioSamples, ENA, EVA, ORCAE and Ensembl Plants.

With the growing number of life-science training resources currently available through TeSS, it can often be a struggle to choose which may be the most relevant to learning needs or an appropriate match to existing skills and competency level.



Guidance is therefore needed to help users to identify which competencies they need to acquire, which training resources will allow them to acquire such competencies and…

This study builds on the Beacon-2016 and Beacon-2017 ELIXIR implementation studies. Current Beacon-2018 study aims to evolve the ELIXIR Beacons into a GA4GH Driver project with full alignment to GA4GH Technical Work Streams and consolidate and establish a fully costed process of “lighting a Beacon” for any ELIXIR node. Moreover, this study has the ambition to deliver Beacon/Beacon Network as an established ELIXIR infrastructure service. In addition to the…

This grant, awarded by the Research Foundation Flanders (FWO) and the Department of Economy, Science and Innovation of the Flemish government (EWI), allows to expand the activities of the Belgian ELIXIR node. The current ELIXIR Belgium node services will be further developed to integrate them better into the ELIXIR network and allow compatibility with cloud based technologies. New projects of ELIXIR Belgium partners will be supported in order to increase the quality and visibility of…

The aim of this grant, provided by the Department of Economy, Science and Innovation of the Flemish government (EWI), is to start building the Belgian ELIXIR node. This will be achieved by the establishment of the collaboration agreement between the ELIXIR partners and with the ELIXIR Hub, the development of an ELIXIR Belgium website, the organisation of a kick-off meeting to officially present ELIXIR Belgium, the organisation of focussed meetings to bring…
