Norwegian lab BioBank will market VHL's testing products for microorganisms, animals, and plants in its home territory.

Investigators intend to genotype the biorepository using Illumina arrays with the aim of identifying markers that can be used to inform treatment and prevention efforts.

The free genetic testing program has amassed genetic data and samples from more than 5,000 patients that researchers can now apply to access.

The partners will collect cancer tissue samples from volunteers in Tamil Nadu — a region with a population of roughly 78 million.

The partners will work together to create a cancer research biobank to help advance Northwell's precision medicine efforts.

The partners have opened a new biorepository that will engage with clinical researchers and foster future personalized medicine efforts in the German capital.

The center, which is seen as a bellwether for integrating genomic information with EMRs, will use the data to inform efforts to prevent chronic, common diseases.

Mount Sinai is the latest healthcare provider to link up with Regeneron's Genetics Center, to pair NGS data with electronic medical record data.

The biobank will also provide lab services to researchers, academic institutions, pharmaceutical firms, and contract research organizations worldwide.

Proponents believe the Million European Genomes Alliance will spur research, stimulate the life sciences economy, and ultimately improve clinical care.
