This Virtual Organisation (VO) contributes to the ELIXIR effort of building a sustainable European infrastructure for biological information, supporting life science research and its translation to medicine, agriculture, bioindustries and society. The Virtual Organisation constitutes the backbone of the ELIXIR Compute Platform and federates cloud compute and storage resources from ELIXIR and EGI providers.
The VO is currently open for the application piloting activities of the ELIXIR Competence Centre of the EGI-Engage H2020 project. Further information about the Competence Centre is available at https://wiki.egi.eu/wiki/CC-ELIXIR. Access to the VO resources is restricted to those working on the Competence Centre activities.
