The Da Vinci European BioBank: A Metabolomics-Driven Infrastructure.

Carotenuto D, Luchinat C, Marcon G, Rosato A, Turano P - J Pers Med (2015)

Bottom Line: We present here the organization of the recently-constituted da Vinci European BioBank (daVEB, https://www.davincieuropeanbiobank.org/it).The biobank was created as an infrastructure to support the activities of the Fiorgen Foundation (http://www.fiorgen.net/), a nonprofit organization that promotes research in the field of pharmacogenomics and personalized medicine.The way operating procedures concerning samples and data have been developed at daVEB largely stems from the strong metabolomics connotation of Fiorgen and from the involvement of the scientific collaborators of the foundation in international/European projects aimed to tackle the standardization of pre-analytical procedures and the promotion of data standards in metabolomics.

jpm-05-00107-f001: Percentage distribution of da Vinci European BioBank (daVEB) collections by (a) samples type and (b) pathology (healthy subjects included).

Mentions: The biomaterial available at daVEB includes different types of samples, as summarized in Figure 1a, with a strong focus on serum and urine, as the most common biofluids employed in metabolomics studies. The samples arise from patients with different pathologies (Figure 1b), but an ample collection comes from healthy controls, which are essential to develop models of metabolomic fingerprint of diseases. Donors defined as healthy subjects are individuals that meet the criteria for voluntary blood donation. A more detailed description of the daVEB sample collections is provided as Supplementary Material (see Table A1).
