A data-centric approach to Life Science

Life science research is increasingly becoming not only technology-driven, but also data-driven. SciLifeLab coordinates and supports activities throughout the life cycle of data, from project planning, data production, data analysis, data sharing, to publishing and reuse of data, where researchers are dependent on advanced data analysis and e-infrastructures. 

Our focus is on data arising from the use of SciLifeLab infrastructure platforms, both to promote research on adding value to data, research deriving biological knowledge from data, and infrastructure making data findable and available. At SciLifeLab, we see data as one of the most valuable and long-lasting products of our operations and strive to make our data FAIR, handled according to open science standards and that its long- term value to the scientific community is maximized.

Services for IT and data management

The SciLifeLab Data Centre provides the SciLifeLab platforms with services for IT and data management. We also work to facilitate the communication between SciLifeLab platforms, their users, and the research community, and develop databases and tools. The purpose is to maximize the scientific impact of SciLifeLab generated data and provide a good helpful IT environment for the SciLifeLab platforms and their users.


The Data Centre built and maintains a database of research assisted by SciLifeLab units. Below you can see the total number of research publications assisted by SciLifeLab per year. See the database for specific publications and break-down per unit. Each unit has the responsibility to report the publications.
