Jaap Heringa (Head of Node, VU).

DTL is in de process of implementing ELIXIR-NL as the Dutch node in the European-wide ELIXIR  framework. ELIXIR-NL activities are part of the DTL Data programme. Only international-grade bioinformatics resources (infrastructures, services or courses) are eligible to become adopted in the ELIXIR-NL portfolio. ELIXIR-NL has the following bioinformatics focal areas:

These focal areas have been selected as topics in which the Netherlands bioinformatics community has a clear added value in the international programme of ELIXIR. This has been confirmed by the ELIXIR international Scientific Advisory Board.

To support the development of the ELIXIR-NL infrastructure, resources and services environment, ELIXIR-NL actively scouts for groups and organisations that provide excellent international-grade bioinformatics services. Please contact Rob Hooft or Jildau Bouwman for more information.

As a pan-European infrastructure for biological information, ELIXIR evolves towards a natural partner for major data-intensive life science programmes and infrastructures. ELIXIR-NL acts in close alignment with other ESFRI-related nodes in the Netherlands, such as BBMRI-NL, EATRIS-NL, NL-BioImaging AM and others. Please contact Morris Swertz or Jan-Willem Boiten for more information.

Access to ELIXIR-NL services

ELIXIR-NL guides life science researchers access to Dutch and international bioinformatics resources and services. A service portal is in development. Please contact Rob Hooft for more information.
