Experts

Microbiology Working Group (WG)

The SBP Microbiology WG is made up of experts and operational biobank managers from Swiss Universities and (University) Hospitals, the Swiss Society for Microbiology, as well various private laboratories. The group is mandated to analyze the current sampling practices and suggest datasets for microbiological samples to support the interoperability among biobanks and facilitate the exchange of samples. A first dataset for bacteria has been defined and opened for public consultation. Further datasets for viruses and possibly fungi and/or parasites are to be defined.
