Scientific Description
ELIXIR is the emerging ESFRI Research Infrastructure for biological information. It will be deployed as a distributed infrastructure, with the Hub located alongside EMBL-EBI at the Genome Campus, Hinxton, Cambridge, and the Nodes based at centres of excellence around Europe. ELIXIR will provide the facilities necessary for Europe’s life science researchers 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 ELIXIR Hub will be connected to ELIXIR Nodes to provide infrastructure for data, compute, tools and standards and training as well as support for the ESFRI biological and medical science infrastructures.
