ELIXIR Norway and the Senter for Bioinformatcis at UiT have the pleasure to inform you that, after a fairly intense period of technological update, Metapipe is now operational.
The first meeting between the Research Infrastructure Project Area Liaison (RI PAL) in BioMedData (BMD) was held September 2nd.
ELIXIR Norway, in collaboration with the Centre for Digital Life Norway, has explored methods to support Norwegian researchers in data management planning for several years. After we got to know the Data Steward Wizard (DSW) in 2018, we started to use it fully in production in 2019 to enable assisted data management planning (DMP) for Life-Scientists across Norway. The Data Steward Wizard provides us with the unique opportunity to facilitate both the generation of DMPs by the research community and at the same time to increase awareness for research data management.
We have good news to all users of NeLS Galaxy
Congratulations Andreas Borchel!
Today, 11 Life Science Research Infrastructure programs in Norway kicked off the BioMedData project to build an open and collaborative framework for the exchange of Life Science Data in Norway.
It is now possible to log on to ELIXIR Norway Data Stewardship Wizard, the data management planning tool for smart generation of DMPs using FEIDE
The COVID-19 epidemic has caused significant societal challenges, and it is of utmost important to identify approaches to mitigate the impact of the disease. The ELIXIR Norway expertise in computational modeling of biological systems can aid in this process.
Visit our new SARS-COV-2 portal for a manually curated database of sequences and metadata for complete SARS_CoV2 genomes, from publicly available resources.
In the writing moment 414 complete SARS-CoV-2 genome sequences are accessible in NCBI and many more are being sequenced world-wide. In addition, the sequence data is being made publicly available.
Open data and science is key against COVID-19, have a look at the efforts and resources provided by ELIXIR and ELIXIR Norway.
Convened by BioData.pt, the first workshop of the ELIXIR-funded Staff Exchange Project entitled “Empowering ELIXIR Nodes to measure and communicate their performance and impact” took place on 30 January 2020, in Lisbon (Portugal)
After the completion of the successful ELIXIR-EXCELERATE project, which provided ELIXIR with solid foundations, this week ELIXIR kicks off a new project to support the provision of data management across Europe. ELIXIR Norway is proud to be a part of ELIXIR-CONVERGE, and will lead a work package and a demonstrator in this project.
The topic is on how you can generate a data management plan for a research project that will meet the requirements of the funding organisations. You will use the ELIXIR Norway Data Steward Wizard to make a data management plan.
ELIXIR Norway is now performing a user survey to evaluate and identify gaps in our bioinformatics services.
Our annual "All Hands" meeting took place during four consecutive days in Oslo, 22-25 October, this year with a strong flavour of data management, thanks to our two new grants BioMedData and Converge!
We are very happy that Norway recently signed the European Declaration 'Towards access to at least 1 Million sequenced genomes in the EU by 2022'. This initiative aims to link genomic information across borders, and ELIXIR Norway is ready to contribute with crucial infrastructure in this effort, along with ELIXIR nodes all over Europe.
ELIXIR Norway was well represented at the 5th ELIXIR All Hands meeting, which took place in Lisbon 17-20 June.
The fifth ELIXIR All Hands meeting will take place 17 -20 June 2019 in Lisbon.
ELIXIR Norway participates in the next ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Genomics and associated data in national healthcare initiatives, which takes place in Stockholm, 5-6 March. Professor Eivind Hovig (UiO) will present an overview of ELIXIR Norway’s involvement in national healthcare initiatives.

The first hands-on workshop in Marine Metagenomics was organised in Tromsø, November 26-30. In the workshop, the participants were introduced to the research field of metagenomcis, with focus on samples from the marine environment.
The yearly project meeting ("All Hands") of ELIXIR Norway took place in the scenic town of Drøbak on October 23-24 2018. During these two days, we had exciting plenary updates from all work packages, in addition to internal and cross work package meetings.
ELIXIR.NO newsletter number 5, January 2018, is now out. Can be downloaded here.
The European Galaxy Administrator Workshop was hosted by ELIXIR Norway in Oslo, 8-12 January 2018, and included five international instructors and 35 national and international participants.
