EMBL-EBI

A team led by researchers at the European Bioinformatics Institute integrated microarray data from more than 5,300 human samples to identify six distinct major groups of human gene expression.

The compound management database contains information on drug and drug-like small molecules, and their genomic and chemical interfaces.

External funding to EBI declined in 2009, not including funding for the ELIXR consortium, but was offset somewhat by an increase in funding from EBI's parent, the European Molecular Biology Laboratory.

The new open access genomics-based small molecule database is hosted by the European Bioinformatics Institute.

The money will help create EMBL-EBI as the hub of a multinational life sciences program, and increase its next-gen resources.

ELIXIR is led by the European Bioinformatics Institute and kicked off last year with €4.5 million ($6.3 million) in funding from the European Commission.

The database, called Gene Expression Atlas, was designed to enable researchers to search through curated and annotated expression data from more than 30,000 microarray experiments collected since the late-1990s.
