ELIXIR Czech Republic

Czech National Infrastructure for Biological Data (ELIXIR-CZ)

a part of ELIXIR


Background description

Life science experiments generate an immense and exponentially increasing volume of data. It is necessary to store the data, make them accessible, interoperable and safe. The major aim is to extract key information and analyze the data effectively. The mission of ELIXIR-CZ is to create a sustainable infrastructure for storing, processing and analyzing life science data in the Czech Republic and to provide an access to tools and training to facilitate these activities. ELIXIR-CZ currently provides 9 databases of life science data and 15 instruments and tools for their processing and analysis. Uniqueness of the ELIXIR-CZ lies in the expertise provided by specialized groups at significant Czech life research organizations – members of ELIXIR-CZ consortium. Jointly they create a bioinformatics platform offering services for wide research community in the open access regime. The participation of ELIXIR-CZ in the pan-European research infrastructure ELIXIR is essential and ELIXIR-CZ benefits from this membership. It increases the visibility of ELIXIR-CZ services and tools, enlarges its user community and it catalyzes project-based cooperation with other ELIXIR national nodes.
