Film: “Biobanks – essential for biomedical research”

Why is it important for researchers to cooperate with professional biobanks? How can scientists access the samples and associated data stored there? The German Biobank Alliance (GBA) has created an informative four-minute film entitled “Biobanks – essential for biomedical research”. The German Biobank Node (GBN) released the film to celebrate the launch of the “Sample Locator” – an online search tool enabling searches for samples and data across different biobank sites. The film is available in German with English subtitles – watch it here:
