Common Infrastructure for National Cohorts in Europe, Canada, and Africa
Over the last forty years, we have seen the emergence of increasing numbers of large cohorts of human samples from research and national healthcare initiatives (e.g. UK Biobank, H3Africa). In Europe alone, the BBMRI-ERIC directory lists nearly 600 distinct biobanks with over 100 million samples of biomaterials and genetic data. In Canada there are sixteen biobanks and in Africa, three H3Africa Biorepositories are now
