Welcome to ELIXIR Slovenia
ELIXIR is a collaborative effort that brings together Europe’s foremost life science institutions to manage and safeguard the ever-increasing amounts of data generated by publicly funded research. By coordinating, integrating, and sustaining bioinformatics resources across its member states, ELIXIR enables researchers in academia and industry to access crucial data, tools, standards, computational resources, and training services to advance their research.
ELIXIR’s mission is to provide a comprehensive and sustainable infrastructure for life science data management and analysis, facilitating the discovery of new knowledge and the development of innovative solutions to complex scientific challenges.
ELIXIR is an inter-governmental organisation which builds on existing data resources and services within Europe. It follows a ‘Hub and Nodes‘ model, with a single Hub located alongside EMBL-EBI in Hinxton, Cambridge, UK and a growing number of Nodes located at centres of excellence throughout Europe. Governments and ministries of countries are members of the ELIXIR consortium, and the scientific community in each member country develops their national Node.
ELIXIR Slovenia (ELIXIR-SI) is a Slovenian node of ELIXIR coordinated by University of Ljubljana, Faculty of Medicine. ELIXIR-SI members are many other leading Slovenian research organizations. ELIXIR-SI is actively upgrading the existing and is establishing new infrastructure in the Slovenian research area through three pillars: (1) national infrastructure for obtaining high-density data with high-throughput laboratory technologies (genomic technologies), (2) a central national data node for life sciences and (3) center for education and training in life sciences (usage of bioinformatic tools, analysis and services). The research infrastructure upgrade is funded by European Regional Development Fund and by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sports and is expected to be finished in mid 2021.
