Quality training in computational skills for life scientists is essential to allow them to deliver robust, reproducible and cutting-edge research. A pan-European bioinformatics programme, ELIXIR, has adopted a well-established and progressive programme of computational lab and data skills training from and , aimed at increasing the Software Data Carpentry number of skilled life scientists and building a sustainable training community in this field. This article describes the Pilot action, which
