European distributed infrastructure for life-science information

European distributed infrastructure for life-science information

Förkortning

ELIXIR (Suomi)

Beskrivning av infrastrukturen

The goal of ELIXIR is to orchestrate the collection, quality control and archiving of large amounts of biological data produced by life science experiments. Some of these datasets are highly specialised and would previously only have been available to researchers within the country in which they were generated. For the first time, ELIXIR is creating an infrastructure – a kind of highway system – that integrates research data from all corners of Europe and ensures a seamless service provision that is easily accessible to all. In this way, open access to these rapidly expanding and critical datasets will facilitate discoveries that benefit humankind. Science and technology change very quickly, and exploiting these advances can be a challenge. ELIXIR partners are building an intelligent, responsive and sustainable system that will deliver the fruits of these advances to the scientists upon whom so many hopes are pinned, and whose curiosity is the very cornerstone of progress. Finland is an ELIXIR member (State agreement 2015/7, Finlex) and CSC hosts the ELIXIR Finland node. National collaboration between CSC and Finnish stakeholders is covered by the Biomedinfra consortium agreement between ELIXIR, BBMRI and EATRIS and the ELIXIR Finland’s membership in the Biocenter Finland bioinformatics network consisting of all major biocenters in Finland. ELIXIR Finland, hosted at CSC, specializes in the European collaboration, provides services in cloud infrastructure, authentication and authorization targeted for biomedical organizations, and resources for training. Node services are currently in production, and actively used in European infrastructure collaborations as well as by the Biomedinfra consortium organisations FIMM and THL (e.g. BBMRI.fi), and Biocenter Finland infrastructure.
