Currently under development, the SYNERGY Bioregistry is a centralized virtual biorepository that will integrate information about samples from existing and future biorepositories. The Bioregistry will comprise:
- A standardized data warehouse of information on existing research biorepositories at Dartmouth
- eSample, a research tool to allow tracking of specimens and integration with the Bioregistry
- Access to the Dartmouth "freezer farm" of large freezer storage units to support archived materials
The Bioregistry will enhance access to a diverse array of biologic samples, allowing investigators to manage sample collection and storage based on individual project needs and enabling researchers to learn about existing samples that can be used to pursue new clinical and translational studies.
