Support for Industry is part of the mission of the EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute. To this end we have established an annual series of information workshops designed to allow SMEs to hear about data resources, tools and services that are provided freely by EMBL-EBI and our collaborators.
The workshop will provide the opportunity to introduce the tools and data resources that are available and the opportunities for SMEs to use and integrate these resources in order to derive benefit from the existing and developing infrastructure.
The topics of the workshop have been specifically selected on the basis of previous interactions with SMEs and include chemogenomics, cheminformatics, proteomics, text mining, literature services and analysis, web services and patent services providing by EMBL-EBI and the European Patent Office, with whom we collaborate.
The workshop is sponsored by a number of EU projects coordinated by EMBL-EBI that are targeted to provide bioinformatics tools and data resources for European research. These include:
All tools and services provided by EMBL-EBI are available free of charge.
Please see www.ebi.ac.uk for more information about the projects.
