ELIXIR, the European Life Science Infrastructure for Biological Information, was founded in 2014 as an intergovernmental organisation and brings together life science resources from across Europe. ELIXIR Germany is the national Node of the European ELIXIR infrastructure since 2016.
ELIXIR Germany is coordinated by Bielefeld University as the representing entity. Funding from the BMBF was made available for the national ELIXIR node through the project “German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure (de.NBI)” until the end of 2021. Since the beginning of 2022, Forschungszentrum Jülich GmbH as a member of the Helmholtz Association has been entrusted with the consolidation of ELIXIR Germany.
The National Node is led by the Head of Node Prof. Andreas Tauch and his deputy Prof. Alfred Pühler. The scientific delegates from Germany to the ELIXIR Board are Prof. Rolf Backofen and Prof. Alexander Goesmann.
