2021-11-24
  Wuhan Biobank, a national-level human genetic resources bank, was officially put into operation in Biolake on Nov. 23. The biobank is the largest one of its kind in Hubei, and also China's first third-party biobank legally approved after the Regulation of the People's Republic of China on the Administration of Human Genetic Resources came into effect.
  11月23日,武汉国家级人类遗传资源库在光谷生物城正式投用。它是目前湖北省规模最大的“生物银行”,同时也是《中华人民共和国人类遗传资源管理条例》颁布实施后全国首个被批准合法合规开展人类遗传资源保藏活动的第三方样本库。

  The biobank stores biological samples of a variety of tissues, blood, urine, cells, plasma, hemocyte, DNA, and RNA from humans. These big data information will be enhanced when it is shared, further technically developed, and commercialized to accelerate the development of new diagnosis and treatment technology, as well as the development of new medicine to achieve precise treatment.
  武汉生物样本库储存的是人体的多种组织,血液、尿液、细胞、血浆、血细胞、DNA、RNA等生物样本。更重要的是,平台还可以将这些大数据信息“升值”:通过数据共享、技术开发、成果转化等方式,发挥加快新诊疗技术新药物研发、帮助实现精准诊疗的目的。
  The biobank has reached strategic cooperation agreements with a number of first-class hospitals, colleges and universities, and enterprises in the country.
  目前,武汉样本库已与国内多家三甲医院、高校、企业达成战略合作协议。
