The biobank catalog is a joint effort between UMCG/RUG Genomics Coordination Center, NBIC biobank platform, LifeLines and BBMRI-NL to produce a tool to catalog and search biobank metadata (questionaires, measurements, etc).
Main objectives are:
- allow epidemiological and genetics researchers to find appropriate biobanks and
- to allow them to define what data they would like to request from the biobank and
- to actually execute such data extraction given suitable consent.
