Database on COVID-19 sample collections and biobanks launched
Sharing data and biobank samples is key to accelerate research on COVID-19, mitigate the effects of the virus, increase preparedness for future pandemics, and enable the development of COVID-19 vaccines and therapeutics. Therefore, SciLifeLab together with Biobank Sweden, now launches a national database on COVID-19 sample collections and biobanks, enabling scientists nationwide to find samples related to the virus.
By making sample collections accessible, the idea is to promote collaborations and enable scientists to find existing sample collections that are relevant for their COVID-19 research.
