ELIXIR-UK Coordination Office

Lead Research Organisation: Earlham Institute
Department Name: Research Faculty

Abstract

The ELIXIR-UK Coordination Office, based at the Earlham Institute in Norwich, will provide national coordination for the activities of the UK Node of ELIXIR. ELIXIR is a European project to integrate life sciences data across the continent with the aim of facilitating the linking of data worldwide. Each country involved in ELIXIR has its own Node, the UK's Node being ELIXIR-UK. ELIXIR-UK coordinates a wide range of activities across training in bioinformatics, data integration, and provision of tools and data involving 16 UK Universities and Research Institutes and the Coordination Office will be pivotal in their delivery, cross-connectivity and impact.

Technical Summary

The ELIXIR-UK Coordination Office will provide strategic and administrative leadership and support to the UK ELIXIR Node. ELIXIR-UK coordinates a wide range of activities across training in bioinformatics, data integration, and provision of tools and data involving 16 UK Universities and Research Institutes and expects to expand its activities further over time.

Planned Impact

Strong participation in ELIXIR is essential to maintain the long-term reputation and international impact of UK bioinformatics and data infrastructure, and to its credibility and equal standing. The ELIXIR-UK node acts as a single entity to partner with other nodes and the hub to jointly develop and run a cohesive EU digital data infrastructure; to roll out the UK's best and to roll in the ELIXIR's member states' best to the benefit of the UK. This will increase the impact of UK bioinformatics globally by giving it influence in decision-making processes during the development of this infrastructure. By engaging sub-communities within the bioinformatics research community, the Office will have a direct positive impact on the UK research community by bringing these communities together and facilitating the building of new collaborations.

The Coordination Office will support ELIXIR in strengthening links across the national life sciences data infrastructure, working together with the UK community and funders, and allowing it to actively facilitate the transfer of technology, data and expertise between different disciplines, from Europe and beyond. These activities will benefit the UK research community who need to make use of large-scale life sciences data (from genomics to environmental scale data) and UK business involved in making use of such data from the health sciences to agricultural companies. It will do this by providing easier access to the essential data and tools needed for them to carry out their research and development.

Training in quantitative science is a priority for all three research councils and by integrating UK and international efforts in this area ELIXIR-UK plays a strategically important role. The BBSRC/MRC review of vulnerable skills identified statistics and quantitative skills as key needs for maintaining the UK's leading position in science with its consequent impact on economic growth. ELIXIR-UK's training activity focusses on five key areas: structural bioinformatics, clinical genomics, applied genomics (relevant to crop plants and farmed animals), core bioinformatics skills (such as statistics, software development, data curation and standards) and metabolomics; strengthening the UK training landscape to provide a deeper pool of skilled individuals in this critical area.

Description The Elixir Coordination office coordinates activities of 15 different member organisations accross the UK delivering the UK contribution to the transeuropean ELXIR project. Many of ELIXIR-UK members are involved (often in a leadership role) in national, European and international organisations where they work on behalf of ELIXIR in some way. ELIXIR-UK delivers training to UK and international science in FAIR data management, software and data carpentry and in the use of bioinformatics tools and resources. ELIXIR-UK coordinates the response of the data infrastructure community to government requests for information including the UKRI infrastructure roadmap and the Science and technology Committee inquiry into balance and effectiveness of science funding

Title Common Workflow Language 
Description The Common Workflow Language (CWL) is a specification for describing analysis workflows and tools in a way that makes them portable and scalable across a variety of software and hardware environments, from workstations to cluster, cloud, and high performance computing (HPC) environments. CWL is designed to meet the needs of data-intensive science, such as Bioinformatics, Medical Imaging, Astronomy, Physics, and Chemistry. CWL is developed by a multi-vendor working group consisting of organizations and individuals aiming to enable scientists to share data analysis workflows. The CWL project is maintained on Github and follows the Open-Stand.org principles for collaborative open standards development. Legally CWL is a member project of Software Freedom Conservancy and is formally managed by the elected CWL leadership team, however every-day project decisions are made by the CWL community which is open for participation by anyone. We are founding members of CWL; co-developed the specification, develop tools such as the CWL Viewer (View.commonwl.org) and promote the adoption of CWL internationally particularly through our EU projects in the Life Sciences. CWL is based on work we undertook in the Taverna Workflow system, developed in the OMII project and developed since in EU projects. 
Type Of Material Improvements to research infrastructure 
Year Produced 2016 
Provided To Others? Yes  
Impact Its the Common Workflow Language adopted extensively by the commerical and and open source sector across disciplines, and in particuar adopted by the Life Sciences. Will be the basis of the European Open Science Cloud Life Science Collaboratory (EOSCLife) and several other ESFRIs.

PI Contribution The collaboration between ELIXIR-UK and ELIXIR is facilitated by the ELIXIR-UK Coordination Office (CO) which operates at the Earlham Institute. The CO provides logistical, administrative, communications, and scientific support to the activities carried out by ELIXIR-UK, and the two staff of the office are the only people within ELIXIR-UK whose budget is directly supported through a designated grant for ELIXIR-UK. By connecting the many parties involved in delivering ELIXIR-UK within the UK and further afield, the team at the EI provides core support for all these activities.
Collaborator Contribution ELIXIR-UK member organisations are estimated to contribute around 6,000,000 GBP each year in-kind to developing and maintaining the ELIXIR-UK Node Resources, and in supporting a range or ELIXIR-specific activities (taking part in face-to-face board meetings, committee meetings, etc.). ELIXIR-UK is contractually obligated (through the Node Collaboration Agreement between ELIXIR Hub and ELIXIR-UK) to ensure the delivery of these services as components of the distributed European life science information infrastructure that is ELIXIR. As result of engagement with ELIXIR, ELIXIR-UK member organisations have received around 500,00 GBP in funding for small projects (commissioned services) funded by the ELIXIR Hub.

Title TeSS 
Description One of the goals of ELIXIR (Europe's distributed infrastructure for life-science data) is to train research scientists to better use available computational infrastructures to address critical research questions. This requires access both to face-to-face training opportunities and to disparate training materials and resources, currently dispersed across Europe. TeSS is ELIXIR's training platform, providing a one-stop shop for trainers and trainees, to find online training content such as training materials, events, and interactive tutorials. For ELIXIR nodes, TeSS provides opportunities to promote training events and news, and to contribute to a growing catalogue of materials; for trainers, the portal offers an environment for sharing materials; for trainees, it offers a convenient portal for identifying relevant training events and resources, and navigating specific training tasks via customised workflows
