University of Luxembourg

and objectives

The University of Luxembourg hosts big data services with OpenStack.

Provide access

ELIXIR, the European infrastructure for life science information, aims to provide access to this wealth of bioinformatics tools and biological data.

Readdressing of previously generated translational data

This data bridges the gap between the molecular level findings from the laboratory and the clinical observations and applications. The objective is the readdressing of previously generated translational data to new research questions dramatically saves time and costs of medical research.

Management systems that collect and integrate

Nowadays the challenge is the major hurdle in the use of biomedical data by a wider research community is the lack of suitable data management systems that collect and integrate all types of data.

Repository for high quality Translational Medicine Data

To provide solutions ELIXIR-LU has developed and hosts a repository for high-quality Translational Medicine Data.
