ELIXIR Estonia

Estonian ELIXIR Node is organised by the University of Tartu. Other partners are  Tallinn University of TechnologyNational Institute for Physics and Biophysics, Tallinn University and Estonian University of Life Sciences.

ELIXIR Estonia focuses on:

  1. Maintenance, upgrade and international integration of bioinformatics tools and databases produced by the Estonian research community (g:Profiler for gene list characterisation and transformation, MEM for large scale gene expression data analysis and queries, ClustVis for visualising and clustering multivariable data, GraphWeb, KEGGanim, Primer design, snail Conus consors genome database, etc.), porting bioinformatics solution on the cloud and exploring alternative cost effective hardware (FPGA, GPU).
  2. Developing, offering and intermediating training on bioinformatics tools, services and infrastructure beyond standard university course offerings.
  3. Developing the Estonian Node to match the emerging needs of bioinformatics services in Estonia e.g. in next-generation sequencing and respective services and building links to high-performance computing facilities in Estonia and throughout ELIXIR. 
  4. Interfacing with BBMRI through partnering with the Estonian Genome Center at University of Tartu (Estonian Biobank). The Estonian Node has expertise in data management solutions for health data, Estonian medical records and e-health data, and participates in the IMI-EMIF-Platform.
