Biobank potentially hold key to the future of breakthroughs in scientific research, drug discovery, and clinical and translational medicine. Biobanking is an important tool in understanding the pathophysiology of various illness. Genetic studies based on biobanking are increasing, as researchers recognize the need for large amounts of samples to identify the genetic basis of susceptibility to common complex diseases. Large scale population biobanking projects link genetic data with information on health status, lifestyle, and environmental factors.
The government is focusing on building biobank due its increased demand and application. For instance, in February 2018, the Thailand Centre of Excellence for Life Sciences (TCELS), Thailand Research Fund (TRF), and Ramathibodi Hospital’s Centre for Medical Genomics collaborated with Shenzen-based BGI Genomics, one of the world’s genome sequencing centers, to collect the entire genome sequence for Thais. The five-year pilot project will collect the whole 19,000 genome sequencing of 10,000 Thai volunteers. The results of the pilot project would then form the initial data as a national ‘bio-bank’ for Thais.
