This event is an opportunity for ELIXIR-IT to present its platforms and skills, made available for the study and characterization of the viral genome and its evolution, fundamental for supporting epidemiological studies on Covid-19 and for drug therapies designed to combat effectively Sars-CoV-2. The Italian node of the European infrastructure, ELIXIR-IT, includes 23 partners as research institutes, universities and technological institutions, and is coordinated by the National Research Council. ELIXIR-IT played an important role in the Covid-19 emergency having contributed with its technological platforms to the comparative analysis of viral genomes isolated in Italy, in their classification and characterization to obtain a detailed mapping of the contagions in the territory, necessary to establish future containment strategies and policies. The program of the proposed activity, which will be carried out in virtual mode, includes a half-day event, with lectures given by researchers associated with ELIXIR who will present the services offered for the COVID emergency.
