Great post Jennifer, it was very interesting! I have been doing a lot of research about biobanking software because a co worker mentioned it to me and how it can really be a huge help when it comes to managing your bio-specimens. That's how I came across you blog and I'm happy I did because this was a very informative post on the Biorepositories event. Thank you for sharing this with us, I'm going to show my co worker this!
