Catalogue of Austrian Biobanks
BBMRI.at is developing a "Catalogue of Austrian Biobanks" which shall provide an overview of the
Austrian BBMRI.at-associated Biobanks and their collections of biomaterial and interrelated data. Providing
insight for researchers into the contents of biobanks is an important step towards a biobanking research
infrastructure. Toggle details ...
The level of detail on the information on BBMRI.at-associated biobanks will be increased in a step wise
manner during the funding period of BBMRI.at.
- In the first level basic information on biobanks were provided (completed).
- The second level contained information on collections and sub-collections (studies), along with
grouped sample information (this version).
- The third level contains information on individual samples and the associated donor-related
information as well as molecular data generated by analysis of samples (planned).
The second version of this BBMRI.at catalogue is now available and contains information on biobanks,
collections and grouped sample data.
