Maximizes the scientific value of historical and contemporary NHLBI biospecimen and data collections. BioLINCC facilitates access by qualified researchers to these research resources, and enhances utilization by promoting awareness of these resources to the research community. It can conduct detailed searches to identify suitable biospecimens for the proposed research project by specific clinical and phenotypic characteristics of the research subjects as well as by specific biospecimen types, volumes and draw times.
It is dedicated to maximising research on patient tissues by initially storing genomics, methylomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and microRNA data that has been mined from the literature and linking to pathways and mechanisms involved in breast cancer. BCCTBbp can be used to build on breast cancer knowledge and maximise the value of existing research. By recording a large number of annotations on samples and studies, and linking to other databases, such as NCBI, Ensembl and Reactome, a wide variety of different investigations can be carried out. Additionally, BCCTBbp has a dedicated analytical layer allowing researchers to further analyse stored datasets.
Provides human tissue samples and tissue procurement services. Geneticist distributes research samples to laboratories for various fields of study such as oncology, dermatology, neurology, immunology, infectious diseases, autoimmune and metabolic disorders. Their unique biobank is composed of well-defined and categorized human tissue samples including breast cancer tissue, blood, serum, bone marrow, and tissue microarrays.
Uses as a resource for cardiovascular research scientists at Duke University since 2004. The Duke Human Heart Repository (DHHR) is an ongoing repository of human heart tissues for research. Recently the repository has opened its collection to researchers in academia and industry in an effort to further our understanding of cardiovascular physiology, disease, bio-markers, and molecular targets for intervention as well as to make available human cardiac tissues/cells for secondary pharmacological testing of pharmaceutical agents in development.
Provides statistics for bone marrow donors registry - especially statistics of donors, executed searches for suitable donor, the typing and harvests before transplantation with using anonymous and restricted databases using, with respect to each cooperating center. MADORA, including the application server and database are operated via the Web, the user interface is designed for most common browsers. Calculations are distributed between the client software and a remote Web server.
Provides essential research specimens and custom services to the scientific community. Coriell Cell Repositories is a database that offers a range of custom research services that have long supported national and international science. It provides a complete repository for human cell lines and a searchable database that would help user to locate the samples. Coriell is committed to provide user with flexible, innovative, and results-oriented research services.
