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-f002: Scheme of the data table for a collection of samples from coeliac patients. The SampleCode field uniquely identifies each sample of the collection.

Mentions: More in detail, each collection corresponds to a specific data scheme. An example is shown for a collection of samples from coeliac patients as a table in Figure 2. In the example, to each sample of the collection the system associates SampleCode, Pathology, the number of aliquots available and the number of aliquots already used (e.g., for metabolomics experiments). The field AvailableData contains a link to the collected metabolomics data. Additional such fields can be added to the table, also after its creation, to point to other data types, such as genetic profiling. Additional tables are used in a similar fashion to store the data of donors as well as clinical data.
