SIB: Bioinformatics data services and analysis tools
The SIB Swiss Institute for Bioinformatics, Swiss node of ELIXIR and a partner of EMBL-EBI, undertakes a wide range of initiatives against SARS-Cov-2, providing data services and analysis tools that can help researchers answer the following questions:
- From where did the new coronavirus arise, and how did it move to humans?
- How is it spreading and evolving?
- How can we develop therapies to treat it?
Health-RI: Dutch Research Data Support Programme
Health-RI, the Dutch national initiative to facilitate and stimulate an integrated health data infrastructure, launched the Dutch Covid-19 Research Data Support Programme, to support investigators and health care professionals with tools and services in their search for ways to overcome the pandemic and its health consequences. It will do so by connecting communities, providing data services and tools and presenting an overview of COVID-19 related initiatives.
ACTRIS: Air quality and atmospheric composition data
The European RI for the observation of Aerosol, Clouds and Trace Gases (ACTRIS) provides virtual access to the near-real time data on air quality and atmospheric composition. This is of particular interest and importance as it provides with an unprecedented overview of the European air quality and atmospheric composition during the lockdown. The near-real time data are open access and available through the ACTRIS Data Centre upon request/special data policy.
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.
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.
