Feature requests & issues

GitHub is used to track fine-grained issues and is the preferred way to make feature requests, content suggestions, EDAM term requests, and bug reports:


GitHub is the primary means for technical coordination: collaborators are encouraged to browse tasks, review priorities, make comments and add new tasks.


Coordination meetings are organised as required. The hangouts usually have an open agenda and respond to current critical needs. Technical representatives of ELIXIR-DK institutes routinely attend and everyone is very welcome: if you’d like to join email us.

Editing tool descriptions

You can contribute to directly:

  • register your own (or other people’s) tools
  • request edit rights (via a button on the Tool Cards) on entries where tools are already registered
  • request ownership (again via a button) of entries, if you are the developer of the tool described but it has been registerd by someone else
  • ask for help via the email, especially in case you have many tools to add or edits to make benefits from the support of ELIXIR Nodes: collections of research institutes from a member country that provide the resources and services that are part of ELIXIR.
