In a biobank, biological samples (e.g. blood, tissue samples) are stored for use in research. These samples can often be used by multiple researchers for cross purpose research studies.
More information about biobanks can be found here:
|EuroBioBank||The EuroBioBank network is the first operating network of biobanks in Europe providing human DNA, cell and tissue samples as a service to the scientific community conducting research on rare diseases.|
|BBMRI-ERIC||BBMRI-ERIC primarily aims at establishing, operating, and developing a pan-European distributed research infrastructure of biobanks and biomolecular resources.|
