The Czech national infrastructure for biological data ELIXIR-CZ is being built as a distributed research infrastructure (RI) for research institutes handling molecular biology and medicine data. Its primary objective is to provide and facilitate open access to a wide portfolio of such data for the scientific community in the Czech Republic. The RI is a follow-up on the Czech Republic connection to the pan-European RI ELIXIR, included in the ESFRI Roadmap. The organisational structure of the RI ELIXIR-CZ copies that of the European RI ELIXIR to some extent; the cooperation among the Czech partner research organisation is coordinated by the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the ASCR.
