    New EMBL-EBI Pathogens Portal

    Built in part on EOSC-Life infrastructure, this Portal provides access to the most comprehensive data on pathogens to date!

    The European Molecular Biology Laboratory‘s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) recently launched their Pathogens Portal, an online platform enabling access to data from more than 200,000 pathogen species and strains.

    How the Pathogens Portal Sustains EOSC-Life Goals

    EOSC-Life brought together the 13 Life Science ‘ESFRI’ research infrastructures (LS RIs) to create an open, digital and collaborative space for biological and medical research. The Portal was built in part on this infrastructure, providing access to data that are both openly accessible via the internet and FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable).

    Who can use the Portal?

    The Portal makes it possible for researchers, clinicians, and policymakers to access the most comprehensive collection to date of biomolecular data on pathogens.

    What data can be accessed?

    The platform currently provides access to nucleotide sequences, raw genomic data, sample metadata, and relevant scientific literature. In the future, even more data types, such as protein sequence and structure and chemistry data from other public data resources will be integrated. The Portal thus has the potential to become a key tool for infection biology and pathogen surveillance.

    The Pathogens Portal was built on infrastructure developed and funded by the EOSC-Life, ELIXIR-CONVERGE, COMPARE, CORBEL projects and EMBL core funding. The sustainability of the platform is currently supported by EU funding through the RECODID, VEO, and BY-COVID projects.
