WP5 Networking to Biobanking

Objectives

WP5 will provide an interface between the ESGI and the leading international and European biobanking initiatives, particularly the ESFRI Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources Research Infrastructure (BBMRI). The major goals of this work package comprise the development of harmonised standards for handling of biological samples including isolation, storage and quality control of DNA and RNA, considering the specific quality requirements of latest sequencing and genotyping technologies. This is a foresight initiative that is intended to support the preparation of clinical and epidemiological collections for future large-scale investigations in genetics.
