Biological Sample Database (Biobank)

What is a Biobank?

A Biobank stores biological samples such as blood, saliva, urine and stools for public health research purposes. These biological samples provide important health information including genetic make up and gut bacteria, which help us understand the causes of disease, so as to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatment.

Here are some examples of Biobank around the world:
