Mexican Biobank Launches the Most Complete Genetic Database of the Mexican Population

Mexican Biobank Launches the Most Complete Genetic Database of the Mexican Population

The Mexican Biobank is a collaborative initiative involving Mexico's National Laboratory of Genomics for Biodiversity at CINVESTAV, the National Institute of Public Health, the National Institute of Medical Sciences & Nutrition, the University of Oxford, and Stanford University. Supported...
Fecal Biobanking: Unlocking the Potential for Colorectal Cancer Research and Treatment

Fecal Biobanking: Unlocking the Potential for Colorectal Cancer Research and Treatment

The gastrointestinal system plays a pivotal role in influencing our general well-being and our reactions to medical treatments. Within it resides an extensive collection of microorganisms, referred to as the gut microbiota, which exists in immense numbers. Scientific investigations...
DwarnaBio – A National Population-Based Biobank Launched by University of Malta

DwarnaBio – A National Population-Based Biobank Launched by University of Malta

The University of Malta is announcing the launch of DwarnaBio, a national population-based biobank, that aims to serve as a resource for genomic research in the Maltese population. Population-based biobanks are critical research instruments in the fields of both common...
Global Biobanks Collaboration Identified Novel Gene Variants for a Rare Severe Lung Disease

Global Biobanks Collaboration Identified Novel Gene Variants for a Rare Severe Lung Disease

The study, led by the University of Helsinki, identified seven previously novel genetic risk factors for idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Only one of these would have been identified if the study had utilized data from European biobanks only. Global collaboration enabled...

Biobank Led by Simon Fraser University Aims to Preserve West Coast Kelp Forests for...

Led by biologist Sherryl Bisgrove, and supported by the Pacific Salmon Foundation, the team has developed a cryogenic freezing technique to store germplasm, or “seed”, of at-risk bull kelp in a biobank. This allows the team, which also includes postdoctoral fellow...
New Research Study Explores the Use of Blockchain Technology to Protect Indigenous Genomic Data

New Study Explores the Use of Blockchain Technology to Protect Indigenous Genomic Data

Genomic data from Indigenous communities plays an important role in understanding an array of diseases; however, this data has often been used without informed consent. A team of UC San Diego researchers—including San Diego Supercomputer Center affiliate Timothy Mackey—recently...
New Project with $5.1 Million Funding Announcement has Considerable Impact on Bison Genome Biobank’s Development at USask

World’s First Bison Genome Biobank’s Development Boosted by $5.1 Million Funding from Genome Canada

The BIG project will apply new genomics solutions to better protect and conserve the wood bison population in Canada. It’s directly connected with the massive $17-million-dollar research initiative called “Integrated omics for sustainable animal agriculture and environmental stewardship” (IntegrOmes)...
Polygenic Risk Scores in diverse populations

Biobank Data Reveals African Ancestry is Less Likely to Identify High-Risk Individuals Through Polygenic...

An international research consortium led by the University of Helsinki has performed the largest study to date evaluating the transferability of genome-wide polygenic risk scores across ancestries. Polygenic risk scores (PRS) measure genetic disease susceptibility by combining risk effects...
Frozen sperm biobank: A new long-term and cost-effective model could help save endangered koalas species

Frozen Sperm Biobank: A New Long-term and Cost-effective Model Could Help Save Endangered Koalas...

Biobanking and assisted reproduction could become a reality for koalas by leveraging the existing technology used to help humans conceive. A detailed model, published today in the international journal Animals, reveals this would significantly help captive breeding programs to retain genetic diversity,...
