dc.description.abstractIn rare disease (RD) research, there is a huge need to systematically collect biomaterials, phenotypic, and genomic data in a standardized way and to make them findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR). RD-Connect is a 6 years global infrastructure project initiated in November 2012 that links genomic data with patient registries, biobanks, and clinical bioinformatics tools to create a central research resource for RDs. Here, we present RD-Connect Registry & Biobank Finder, a tool that helps RD researchers to find RD biobanks and registries and provide information on the availability and accessibility of content in each database. The finder concentrates information that is currently sparse on different repositories (inventories, websites, scientific journals, technical reports, etc.), including aggregated data and metadata from participating databases. Aggregated data provided by the finder, if appropriately checked, can be used by researchers who are trying to estimate the prevalence of a RD, to organize a clinical trial on a RD, or to estimate the volume of patients seen by different clinical centers. The finder is also a portal to other RD-Connect tools, providing a link to the RD-Connect Sample Catalogue, a large inventory of RD biological samples available in participating biobanks for RD research. There are several kinds of users and potential uses for the RD-Connect Registry & Biobank Finder, including researchers collaborating with academia and the industry, dealing with the questions of basic, translational, and/or clinical research. As of November 2017, the finder is populated with aggregated data for 222 registries and 21 biobanks.es_ES
dc.description.sponsorshipThis work has been supported by the European Union Seventh Framework Programme (FP7/20072013) under grant agreements no. 305444 (RD-Connect). RD-Connect has a main role in funding authors contributing to the study design, data collection and analysis, decision to publish, or preparation of the manuscrip. NeurOmics (no. 305121, and EURenOmics (no. 305608, have had mainly a role of data providers, since several registries participating to the Registry & Biobank Finder collaborate with the two projects. We thank ODEX4all (NWO 650.002.002), ELIXIR funded through participating member states, and ELIXIR-EXCELERATE funded through the European Commission within the Research Infrastructures Programme of Horizon 2020 (grant agreement number 676559) for collaborating to the study design and software development especially with a view to interoperability with other systems (MR, MT). MF and MM are funded by Fondazione Telethon (Project GTB12001; Telethon Network of Genetic Biobanks).es_ES
