DIRECTORY

What is a biobank directory?

A directory is a tool to share aggregate information about biobanks within a network. It provides a central listing of biobanks offering researchers a way of finding samples and related data, while for biobanks, it offers a platform to promote their biological resources and services and to connect with interested researchers.

This directory targets:

  • Biobankers who want to increase their biobank visibility or promote their services
  • Researchers who are looking for samples and related data or for infrastructures offering specific services
  • Patients or research participants who are interested in knowing which biobanks store specific samples or in obtaining general information about certain biobanks
