Biobanks and Biorepositories are linked with Cohort studies in a variety of ways. These studies may provide a source of biological samples or be the destination you send your samples to. Regardless, one of the primary applications of samples will include genomics analysis such as sequencing and genotyping. This talk covers pragmatic solutions and applications of these technologies in the framework of cohort studies. Additionally the talk will focus on DNA extraction technologies, exemplified with pictures and movies from the Lab.
