Collaborations

ELIXIR Norway

ELIXIR Norway is the Norwegian national node of ELIXIR, the pan-European infrastructure for biological information, supporting life science research and its translation to medicine, environment, the bioindustries and society. This organization is a virtual organization where the Center of Bioinformatics hosts the regional Oslo node. It participates to the national help-desk user support, and in that activity also collaborates and coordinates closely with the Helse Sør-Øst-funded Bioinformatics Core facility.
