Switzerland signs the ELIXIR consortium agreement and contributes €35 million
Date:10/30/2013

er States to ratify the Agreement". Switzerland, which had already signed the Memorandum of Understanding in 2011, has thus confirmed its participation in the project. Research, life sciences and bioinformatics have been strongly supported by the Swiss government for many years, which is one of the reasons why Switzerland currently has a robust bioinformatics infrastructure.

SIB, the Swiss node of ELIXIR, is pleased to lend its support to ELIXIR

Since its inception, SIB, which is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year, has positioned itself as a major contributor to the life sciences. UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot, neXtProt, STRING, SWISS-MODEL are only a few of the core resources that have been created by SIB and are available to the life science research community worldwide. In total, more than 130 resources are accessible through SIB's web portal ExPASy (http://www.expasy.org). SIB, whose infrastructure and research groups are located in the major Swiss Universities and Federal Institutes of Technology, has a long experience in interinstitutional, intercantonal and international collaboration. Training the next generation of bioinformaticians is another of the Institute's roles, and demonstrates how SIB's missions are in tune with those of ELIXIR. According to Ron Appel, Executive Director of SIB, "ELIXIR will give a new dimension to European collaboration and open the door to the future of science".
