Welcome, Global Biobanks!
BBMRI-ERIC invites any biobanks around the globe that are offering samples and datasets available for COVID-19-related research to register their applicable collections on the BBMRI-ERIC Directory. BBMRI-ERIC is thrilled to be collaborating with ISBER, the International Society for Biological and Environmental Repositories, as a use case to expand the BBMRI-ERIC Directory in order to bring together biobanks within and beyond Europe in one convenient location.
How to list your biobank on the BBMRI-ERIC Directory
- If you haven’t already, please fill out this input form to have your biobank listed under the BBMRI-ERIC Directory. Then someone from the BBMRI-ERIC IT team will get in touch about transferring data.
- You can familiarize yourself with our Directory and its new COVID-19 filters here. Incoming biobank collections will be listed and filtered by country and other filters to the left.
- In order to track requests, it is necessary to then register your biobank under our Negotiator after successful listing in the Directory. The Negotiator is a communication platform for biobankers and researchers requesting samples and/or data. If you do not complete this step, requests will not reach you! Follow the instructions for registering with the Negotiator. (The instructions may look daunting, but once you have successfully logged in the first time we promise it will be easy to use from then on!)
