Lead by Stichting European Grid Initiative: High-throughput technologies are more accessible to research-biobanking and the number of biobanks providing services that require large storage capability and parallel data analysis is increasing dramatically. Moreover, data from multiple biobanks must now be pooled to reach statistical power to elucidate meaningful associations, while complying with legal and regulatory issues. This BBMRI-ERIC EGI (European Clinical Research Infrastructures Network) Competence Centre thus focuses on helping BBMRI-ERIC to bridge this gap with the implementation of big data storage in combination with data analysis and data federation using EGI federated cloud infrastructure.
