About usThe European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), Europe’s largest bioinformatics resource, is

organised under three Programs: Service, Research and Industry. As the names suggest, each program emphasises a different aspect of work at the EBI. The Service Program of the EBI focuses on building, maintaining and providing biological databases and information services to support data deposition and exploitation. Research and Development within the Service Program investigates the latest methods in database design and interoperability with a view to providing the best possible information services. The Service Program of the EBI is responsible for the EMBL Nucleotide Sequence database, Ensembl, ArrayExpress, the European Macromolecular Structure Database (EMSD), Reactome, UniProt, InterPro and many other database projects. In total, the EBI provides access to more than 200 public biological databases through general purpose search platforms as well as specialised warehouses. The institute services are requested globally by 10,000 unique hosts that generate, on average, 200,000 page impressions daily. The EBI Proteomics Services Team of around 20 members provides databases and tools for the deposition, distribution and analysis of proteomics and proteomics-related data, such as the IntAct protein interaction database and the PRIDE protein identification database. The group is actively involved in many international collaborations and initiatives like the HUPO Proteomics Standards Initiative (PSI) and several more standardisation efforts such as

MIAPE and the management of the IMEx international data exchange consortium.
ContributionsEBI will contribute overall coordination and standardization of the informatics efforts:

creationof standard processing procedures, establishing the LipidomicNet Knowledgebase infrastructure and data access strategy. EBI also provides support for the dissemination of the assembled data, results and knowledge via the LipidomicNet Knowledgebase and other,

specialized databases if appropriate for detailed datasets.
