What is ELIXIR?

Access to and sharing of Life Science data globally requires well-functioning Research Data Infrastructures (RDIs). RDIs need to provide access to the wide range of life science data repositories. Within Europe access to data repositories is currently fragmented among some large centres - such as the EBI and the Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics - and many smaller centres, many located within Universities or Research Institutes, which also provide high quality data resources and research tools.

On Thursday 23rd June the UK voted to leave the European Union. In light of this ELIXIR issued the following statement in consultation with ELIXIR-UK:

“In light of the decision by the UK to leave the European Union (EU), ELIXIR would like to clarify that it is not part of the EU: the result does not affect UK membership of ELIXIR, nor have any direct bearing on ELIXIR's ability to access EU research funding. The ELIXIR Hub uses the legal model of EMBL, which is itself an international treaty organisation. It is entirely separate from the EU and a statement from EMBL clarifies this in detail.

The UK has not voted to leave EMBL or ELIXIR. The operational budget of the ELIXIR Hub can continue to be committed on Commissioned Services carried out between the UK and other ELIXIR Members.

The ELIXIR Hub are looking for an experienced and dynamic bioinformatician with strong interest and solid knowledge of semantic technologies in the life sciences to join ELIXIR as the technical lead for data management and interoperability.


4th Workshop on Sustainable Software for Science: Practice and Experiences (WSSSPE4)
 
 

This free online course aims to raise awareness amongst healthcare professionals of the role of Clinical Bioinformatics and Genomics in healthcare today. We will illustrate how the discipline of Clinical Bioinformatics provides an important bridge between the cutting edge science and the delivery of genomic medicine in clinical practice. By understanding the role of a Clinical Bioinformatician it will become clear how integral they are to ensuring the beneficial opportunities of genomic medicine are fully realised in patient care
