- Human biobanks, which are the core of BBMRI-ERIC medical research infrastructure, are repositories of biological material and data associated with the research participants (donors or patients willing to participate in the research). The associated data covers a broad range of data types: from data collected directly from the research participants and medical processes related to them, to data generated from the biological material. This document focuses on describing biobank data processing workflows that were selected for piloting in EGI-Engage the biobanks by the BBMRI.nl and BBMRI.cz (national nodes of BBMRI-ERIC) together with their associated biobanks. The main focus is on proteomics and genomics workflows, which cover both extremes of privacy-sensitive data processing spectrum: from relatively non-sensitive applications to very sensitive ones.
