BARC - Biobanking Analysis Resource Catalogue
BBMRI.se releases Biobanking Analysis Resource Catalogue (BARC), which is a freely available web resource, cataloguing expertise and molecular resources available for analysis of biobanked samples. The catalogue is designed for researchers on how best to make use of valuable samples, from preanalytical handling and sample preparation to analysis techniques themselves and their requirements. The information is regularly updated by the providers who agree to make their resources available. An additional feature of BARC is short review articles, describing important molecular technologies for sample analysis, contributed by expert in the various fields.
BARC facilitates your biobank study by providing:
- Information on specific assay techniques and reagent resources for analysis of e.g. DNA, RNA, proteins and metabolites.
- Comprehensive coverage of academic service providers and company products in Sweden.
- Search functions to locate techniques best suited for your samples and contacts to regional resource providers.
- Short tutorial texts describing important molecular technologies for analysis of biobanked samples.
BARC is developed and managed at the Department of Immunology, Genetics and Pathology, Uppsala University, Sweden.
