  16. 16. Communities
  17. 17. Highlight: 3DBioinfo To develop the infrastructure for FAIR structural and functional annotations To create open resources for sharing, integrating and benchmarking software tools for modelling the proteome in 3D To develop tools to Describe, Analyse, Annotate, and Predict Nucleic Acid Structures To help develop models for protein-ligand interactions 3DBioInfo Launch, Basel, 2018Christine Orengo, UCL Increasing Interoperability between ELIXIR Protein Structure and Sequence Resources and Expanding these Resources with 3D-Models of CATH Domains, built by SWISS-MODEL CATH protein structure classification Core Data Resource, Jalview multiple sequence alignment editing, visualisation and analysis tool PHYRE2 protein structure prediction Co-led Commissioned Service:
  18. 18. The ELIXIR Node Services UK developed Service Best Practice. 9 new services in review. https://f1000research.com/articles/5-2894/v2 Dundee Resource for SequenceAnalysis and Structure Prediction CDR RIR Portal
  19. 19. PHI-base http://www.phi-base.org/ Expertly curated molecular and biological information on genes proven to affect the outcome of pathogen-host interactions.
  20. 20. Highlight: The TeSS Training Portal https://tess.elixir-europe.org ELIXIR training portal to aggregate events and training materials 77% increase in users 2018-2019 75 content providers 284 Upcoming events 10657 past 1328 materials 1K users / month 50:50 manual/auto Born native of ELIXIR
  21. 21. The TeSS Training Portal in a Nutshell automatically aggregate training resources link to registries content embedded with widgets in 3rd party sites curation tools
  22. 22. Organising and Navigating Content Concept Maps and Learning Paths Experiments Funded by Commissioned services Concept maps Learning outcome templates Generate learning paths Relate to Service Bundles
  23. 23. Community Contributions for Content and Code, and Wider uptake -> from start-up to maturity Open Development Framework Metadata processors Scraper development Curation Contributions Embedded widgets Scale Contribution Modularise, Packaging, Governance Other communities. Around topics, communities, organisations, geographical. CZI, EJP-RD, HDR-UK, ARDC, EOSC. TeSS needs to be packaged, marketed, and supported properly Content User UX Added value
  24. 24. TeSS, the UK Node and the ELIXIR Platform a native ELIXIR infrastructure service Changes in UK leadership • Manchester -> Cambridge Resources challenge • 1.5 FTE dedicated development in one organisation (4 people needed) • Over dependence on Niall • Lack resources to build UK base National funding challenges • Seen as an ELIXIR not UK service • Incorporation into BioFAIR proposal Resources for content curation • Affects quality of service UK Node ELIXIR Platform Excelerate Impl Studies 2014 2016 2019 2021 A native ELIXIR Infrastructure Service to be collective managed by all ELIXIR Nodes
