ELIXIR-CZ: Life science data services
The Czech National Infrastructure for Biological Data (ELIXIR-CZ) provides a research infrastructure for the storage, processing and analysing data in the field of life sciences. ELIXIR-CZ has launched a website dedicated to COVID-19, where experts and the general public can find information on activities related to the fight against COVID-19. The website provides recommendations for data storage and sharing and the information on access to relevant data. ELIXIR-CZ specifically provides assistance in setting up the FAIR data principles, special software and analytics tools, and computing resources to help analyse data sets.
DeiC: Data storage and cloud resources
With the current COVID-19 situation, there is need for international cooperation on sharing information and making data available to research that that can contribute to alleviate the impacts of COVID-19 on citizens, healthcare systems and society. The University of Copenhagen/The Technical University of Denmark can make cloud resources, data storage space, etc. available as a flexible secure private cloud setup at Computerome. This also includes a data-lake facility, which can handle different data sets and types and the required storage space. This includes epidemiological information and sequencing data.
PRACE: Access to computing resources
PRACE (Partnership for Advanced Computing in Europe) is welcoming project proposals requesting computing resources to contribute to the mitigation of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. PRACE partners, HPC centres, and research infrastructures are doing their bit by opening up their facilities for urgent/priority access to the HPC systems and other resources to support the research to combat the coronavirus. Please find a list of these initiatives here.
ELIXIR: Life science data tools and resources
ELIXIR, the ESFRI Research Infrastructure for life science data, provides a range of services and resources, that can be used by researchers and consortia working on SARS-CoV-2 research via ELIXIR Nodes. ELIXIR has also initiated new community-driven initiatives (e.g. Hackathons) that help to open up and link COVID-19 data. As details become available, they will be published on the ELIXIR COVID-19 webpage linked below.
e-INFRA CZ: Data and computation services
In the light of the current events regarding the spread of new strain of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 and Covid-19 disease, Czech e-infrastructure e-INFRA CZ offers priority access to resources and services for projects focused on mitigating the pandemic spread. For these purposes, e-INFRA CZ offers services and knowledge in the areas of remote collaboration, computation, data storage, and computer networking.
