Sample Group

Information of samples is scattered in multiple and dispersed samples data repositories. Not all the sample data repositories have a programmatic interface and the existing variety of programmatic interfaces are diverse and changeable.


  • Facilitate the ingestion of sample metadata from data repositories (eg. Biobank databases) into registries like the Biosamples, BBMRI Biobank directory or the UKCRC Tissue Directory via Bioschemas.
  • Engage and help data providers and developers of BioBank LIMS to test and adopt the exposure of sample metadata via Bioschemas
  • Contribute to contextualise information from data sample registries (eg. Biosamples) and biobank sample repositories (eg. NL Biobank) and Biobank Registries (eg. BBMRI Biobank directory)
  • Make registries like Biosamples compliant with Bioschemas.
