Austrian Biobank Catalog is developing the "Catalog of Austrian Biobanks" which provides an overview of the Austrian 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.
