Biobanca Integrata Tessuto-Genomica


Istituto Giannina Gaslini

The Biobank Integrated Tissue&omics (BIT) has been established at Gaslini Institute, based on integration between the pathology and molecular biology units, with the aim of not only collecting, storing and distributing tissues and their genomic products but also organizing relevant clinical, demographical, molecular and other information on the donor/sample, thus generating a digital biobank. The comprehensive database thus implemented contains clinical data, pathology classifications, DNA structure, Gene expression profile, miRNA profile, NGS etc. This organization constitutes an added value for clinical usage (prognostic factors, therapy indicators) primarily available to the patient, and research (datamining, biomarkers, pathways etc).
