Life scientists active in RDA
The ELIXIR Bridging Force IG bridges the activities of the ELIXIR “Data For Life” research infrastructure in Europe with the activities of RDA in two directions: bringing in expertise gained in European bioinformatics into RDA, and bringing RDA experience to the benefit of the European Life Science researchers. The ELIXIR Bridging Force IG was one of the first discipline specific IGs of the RDA.
