The Biobanking Analysis Resource Catalogue (BARCdb): a new research tool for the analysis of biobank samples.

Galli J, Oelrich J, Taussig MJ, Andreasson U, Ortega-Paino E, Landegren U - Nucleic Acids Res. (2014)

Bottom Line: BARCdb can help match resource providers with potential users, stimulating transnational collaborations and ensuring compatibility of results from different labs.It can promote a more optimal use of European resources in general, both with respect to standard and more experimental technologies, as well as for valuable biobank samples.This article describes how information on service and reagent providers of relevant technologies is made available on BARCdb, and how this resource may contribute to strengthening biomedical research in academia and in the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries.

Figure 1: The BARCdb webpage showing (A) the home page and (B) a search result for next generation DNA sequencing resources. Individual cards function as links to more details of the analysis resource.

Mentions: BARCdb presents resource and provider information in the form of ‘resource cards,’ which summarise the services available at each site and the contact details (Figure 1). Each card can be expanded with a click to provide more details. Specifications for sample requirements are included on the card, such as which types of samples can be analysed, recommended assay format, minimal sample volume, analysis throughput, and cost. The database can be searched either by free text or by categories, i.e. genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, imaging, bioinformatics and biomolecular resources. The search can also be refined by geographical location, resource type, database, product or service.
