Building a sustainable European infrastructure for biological information, supporting life science research and its translation to medicine, agriculture, bioindustries and society.
ELIXIR unites Europe’s leading life science organisations in managing and safeguarding the massive amounts of data being generated every day by publicly funded research. It is a pan-European research infrastructure for biological information.
ELIXIR provides the facilities necessary for life science researchers - from bench biologists to cheminformaticians - to make the most of our rapidly growing store of information about living systems, which is the foundation on which our understanding of life is built.
The Turing Way is a lightly opinionated guide to reproducible data science. Our goal is to provide all the information that researchers need at the start of their projects to ensure that they are easy to reproduce at the end. This also means making sure PhD students, postdocs, PIs, and...

ELIXIR Webinar: Mapping the landscape of Biocuration in ELIXIR
25 November 2020ELIXIR Webinar: Mapping the landscape of Biocuration in ELIXIR https://www.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-biocuration https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-webinar-mapping-the-landscape-of-biocuration-in-elixir The webinar will present the results of the ELIXIR Implementation Study "Mapping the landscape of Biocuration in ELIXIR" run from December 2018 until May 2020. The Implementation study aimed at: Reviewing and mapping the type of curation work being done, for which databases across ELIXIR, and in which life science/health domains; Identifying the tools curators are currently using for curation tasks; Assessing the capacity requirements for new curators and training provision available; The goal was to produce an initial map of (1) biocurators, (2) manually curated knowledgebases and data repositories, (3) curation tools and resources. More information about the content of the webinar and the speaker will be available closer to the webinar date. 2020-11-25 15:00:00 UTC 2020-11-25 15:00:00 UTC

ELIXIR Webinar: Bioschemas - Improving findability of life science resources
14 October 2020ELIXIR Webinar: Bioschemas - Improving findability of life science resources https://www.elixir-europe.org/events/webinar-bioschemas https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-webinar-bioschemas-improving-interoperability-of-life-science-resources This ELIXIR webinar will present the Bioschemas initiative that uses the schema.org markup to improve the discoverability of life science data and other resources. Bioschemas develops schema.org specifications for content relevant to life science research (dataset, gene, protein and many more) and encourages consistent use of the specifications to ease the consumption of the contained markup across many sites. This structured information then makes it easier to discover, collate, and analyse distributed data. The webinar will be presented by Alasdair Gray (Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh, UK, ELIXIR UK), Chair of the Bioschemas Leadership team. More information will be available closer to the event. 2020-10-14 14:00:00 UTC 2020-10-14 14:00:00 UTC
