GBN’s IT network links biobanks and facilitates the search for human biosamples and associated data across multiple locations.
The IT infrastructure of the German Biobank Alliance (GBA) was set up by an interdisciplinary team of developers. It is based on previous work of the German Cancer Research Centre (DKFZ) and the Common Service IT of BBMRI-ERIC.

Which BIMS is best suited for a biobank depends on local requirements and objectives. To support biobanks in their search, GBN has published a questionnaire.
"The meeting not only provided an opportunity for professional exchange, but also created an atmosphere of collegial cooperation," said Michael Hummel.
With the starter kit, "young" biobanks in particular can benefit from the concentrated knowledge that GBN/GBA has developed over the last decade.
