Biobank Toolkit

The Biobank TOOLKIT provides a one-stop location for access to biobanking tools.

Tools are searchable by:

This website aims to solve the author/contributor name ambiguity problem in scholarly communications by creating a central registry of unique identifiers for individual researchers and an open and transparent linking mechanism between ORCID and other current author ID schemes. ORCID is an independent organization.
This document presents selected Key Health Organizations/Projects involved in Biobanking. For each organization/project, the table addresses the general mission and indicates if it is particularly involved in the four following domains: (1) Guidelines and scientific tools creation to support biobanks, (2) Networking and harmonization, (3) Scientific Discoveries and (4) Biobanking. A P3G-prepared document (2010).

This document is designed as a template for those involved in prospective, longitudinal population studies. It is tailored to obtaining the consent of adult participants and does not include any additional considerations for the consent of minors or vulnerable populations. Specifically, this template should assist biobanks in drafting their information brochures and consent forms for individuals considering participating in their study. (2014)

The following presents the core elements to be included or at least considered when drafting an access policy for a population biobank. This generic list provides biobanks with guidance to create access policies specific to their needs that adequately address access issues, irrespective of geographical location. (2013)

The proposed governance framework incorporates an analysis of the last five years of legislation, policies and literature that have influenced and shaped the governance of biobanks, and reflects the P3G’s vision of global access to research tools. Moreover, the practices of current P3G members were reassessed, including their governance mechanisms and changes in policy since 2008. (2013)

This generic document is designed as a template for use by those involved in prospective, longitudinal population genomics studies and is based on approaches found amongst P³G members. It is designed to indicate the elements that may be considered when creating an information pamphlet for a resource or biobank project. Prepared by the Genetics and Society Project, Montreal University (2007).

This document compares the different approaches for dietary assessments. For each approach, the table addresses the main fields of comparison, i.e. objectives, quantitative/semi-quantitative approaches, time recall, strengths/weaknesses, number of items, administration mode, references and references of studies using this approach. A P3G-prepared document (2009).
