Swiss Biobanking Platform (SBP) is the national initiative of the Swiss National Science Foundation (SNSF) established as the reference platform for the coordination and harmonization of Swiss biobanks in all fields of research. It responds to the needs of the biobanking and research communities to increase the visibility, accessibility and interoperability of biobanks as well as foster value and quality of biological resources.
SBP and SNSF invite the research community to a virtual Workshop on Connecting researchers and biobanks: the BioLink experience. What’s “NExT” ? This event will take place on April 20th 2021 from 1:30 to 5:30pm.
It aims at sharing the experience of the SNSF BioLink projects for the interoperability of biobanks as well as showcasing the SBP NExT as a new tool to help the biobanks and the research community to share biological material. At the Workshop, you will actively participate in discussing the future needs in this field the BioLink instrument will have to cover and learn how to get connected and increase the value of your biological samples through data interoperability and sharing.
