BILS (Bioinformatics Infrastructure for Life Sciences) is a distributed national research infrastructure supported by the Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet) providing bioinformatics support to life science researchers in Sweden. BILS is also the Swedish node in the European infrastructure for biological information ELIXIR. BILS would like to evaluate the EGI Federated Cloud since they prefer to use a cloud infrastructure instead to buy proprietary resources.
