ELIXIR is a European Research Infrastructure (www.elixir-europe.org) for biological data which primary objective is to support research in the field of “life sciences” and their translational activities to medicine, environment , biotechnological industries and society.
ELIXIR is organized as a distributed infrastructure constituted by several nodes (the “ELIXIR Nodes”), one for each Member State, and each Node is hosted by one or more center of excellence for bioinformatics located throughout Europe . Nodes are connected to a central hub ( ‘ELIXIR-Hub’), which is located at Hinxton (UK) in the “Wellcome Genome Campus” that also hosts the EMBL’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI).
The Italian Node of ELIXIR is coordinated by the National Research Council and currently includes 17 partners including research institutes, universities and technological institutions.
ELIXIR-Italy, which has the ambition to raise an Italian Bioinformatics Institute (IIB) distributed across multiple centers, aims to bring together all the Italian researchers working in the field of bioinformatics, encouraging the exchange and development of skills, integrating the various Italian bioinformatics resources that share international scientific recognition and are publicly available, and to contribute to their integration within the European infrastructure.
Another primary objective of ELIXIR-ITA is to organize training activities, both at basic and advanced levels, covering various application fields of Bioinformatics in order to encourage the training of young bioinformaticians, since demand for them is booming both at the national and international levels.

ELIXIR-IIB is offering HPC computational resources to researchers from ELIXIR-IIB, other ELIXIR Nodes and any European research institution through the pilot HPC@CINECA Call. Resources are provided through the Cineca web and command line High Performance Computing (HPC) platforms for bioinformatic data analysis. Please refer to the text of the Call for more info.more >
