Gene Logic Contributes Software to Genetic Alliance BioBank

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — Gene Logic is contributing its TRIMS clinical information system to the Genetic Alliance BioBank to help the group host and manage thousands of DNA and tissue samples, the organization said today.
 
The Genetic Alliance BioBank is a consortium of seven genetic disease advocacy organizations formed in 2003 with the goal of building a repository to collect, store, and distribute biological samples and clinical data in a standardized manner.
 
The organization said that it will use Gene Logic’s TRIMS to collect clinical histories, medical records and images, and track this information over time.
 
Current members of the Genetic Alliance BioBank include Angioma Alliance, CFC International, Inflammatory Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Joubert Syndrome Foundation, National Psoriasis Foundation, NBIA Disorders Association, and PXE International.
