Biobanking, the archiving of biological specimens from donors for use in research, has become an important resource for healthcare research, medical care, and drug discovery. The kinds of questions being addressed in contemporary medical research depend upon the availability of biological tissue samples along with associated clinical data including medical, genealogical, and lifestyle information.
