Use cases

New biobank setup

A university hospital has recently launched a biobank. The biobank will be used as a data source for their own research, but they’re also seeking external commercial and academic research projects to collaborate with, including clinical trial projects. In addition to collecting clinical data from electronic health records and other hospital databases, they are producing […]

University hospital using genomics for clinical and research work

A research oriented university hospital with their own NGS lab, is moving from targeted disease specific sequencing panels to panels covering thousands of genes, whole-exome and eventually to whole genome sequencing to facilitate secondary use of the NGS data for research. As the cost of sequencing is continuously dropping, performing whole-exome or whole-genome sequencing once […]

Existing biobank with sample management and clinical data

An university hospital has a growing biobank collecting clinical data and DNA samples. To add to the value of the biobank by facilitating pharmaceutical companies to run availability queries for feasibility studies as well as facilitating high scale genomic research, they have decided to produce genotype data for 100 000’s of patients. They will also […]

Biobank combining electronic health record (EHR) and genomic data

This university hospital runs a biobank that is continuously used to recruit patients for clinical research studies. The recruited patients participate by giving a DNA sample and an informed consent to use all of their data in the hospital’s records for research. All patients are genotyped and then imputed using the BC|GENOME system...
