CORBEL – Coordinated Research Infrastructures Building Enduring Life-science services – is an EC Horizon2020 project uniting 11 Biological and Medical Science Research Infrastructures (RIs). In CORBEL, the participating RIs expand their cooperation in order to harmonise researchers’ access to their cutting-edge technologies and services by establishing a sustainable platform of aligned services that will enable faster admission to and a wider portfolio of technologies and services to boost research projects.
The CORBEL Open Call invites researchers to apply to access technologies and services from more than 15 facilities from eight different research infrastructures across Europe. Selected projects will be allocated to so-called Access Tracks and gain unprecedented opportunities to utilise a wide range of high-end technologies and services. These include state-of-the-art offers from the fields of advanced imaging, biobanking, curated databases, marine model organisms, mouse mutant phenotyping, screening and medicinal chemistry, structural biology as well as systems biology.
Projects will be supported at every stage, with CORBEL project managers on hand to help scientists navigate between different service providers and exploit the full potential of the offers available.

The 12th meeting on Integrative Bioinformatics took place in Bielefeld,  21st - 23rd September 2016. Bioinformaticians, Computer Scientists, Systems Biologists, Synthetic Biologists and others working or interested in the developing area of integrative bioinformatics listened to the presentation "de.NBI - German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure" by Andreas Tauch (Head of the Administration Office).

Due to the high interest in the GCB poster session with over 100 posters on display, there are two independent slots: Poster No 1-60 will be shown on Tuesday; No 61-102 (and additional submissions) will be on display in parallel to the R&D session on Wednesday. The poster "de.NBI - German Network for Bioinformatics Infrastructure" has the No. 100 and will be on display on Wednesday. In addition, A. Pühler will give insights into the network during his talk "de.NBI and ELIXIR" on Thursday.

In two different workshops, "Cloud Computing Tutorial" and "Label-free quantification using OpenMS and workflows", more than 40 participants got insights into de.NBI tools.

From 29 August - 2 September 2016, 25 participants took part in the de.NBI-DZIF training course "targeted and untargeted metagenome analysis" in Bielefeld. Based on the BiBiCloud, the workshop covered different aspects of general NGS data handling, 16S amplicon data analysis utilizing the command line tool QIIME and approaches based on the reconstruction of genomes by assembling of reads and binning of contigs. Keynote speakers were Dr. Alex Sczyrba (Bielefeld University, DE) Dr. Christopher Quince (Glasgow University, UK) and Dr. A. Murat Eren (University of Chicago, USA).
