ELIXIR Norway is a 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.

ELIXIR Norway is funded by the Research Council of Norway, and builds upon the Norwegian Bioinformatics Platform, which has provided support and tools for Norwegian life science research for nearly two decades.

Tromsø node

The ELIXIR node in Tromsø (ELIXIR@UiT) focus on microbial organisms from the arctic oceans and human associated bacteria. At ELIXIR@UiT you can get assistance related to research topics such as metagenome analysis, 16S rRNA amplicon analysis microbial genomics, transcriptomics and phylogenomics. We also have competence in building databases and analysis pipelines.

The node is building and maintaining the SARS-CoV-2 Database, a knowledge database for SARS-CoV-2 virus research compiled from publicly available resources.
