H3Africa Sample Collection and Deposit Map
The Biorepository Program manages Boispecimen collections from the Human Heredity and Health in Africa (H3Africa) Consortium. H3Africa studies are currently collecting DNA and other biospecimens from participants in 22 African countries to assess genomic and environmental influences on communicable and non-communicable diseases. Most biospecimens will be linked to study datasets that will be deposited in the European Genome-Phenome Archive.
The Biospecimen collections are being stored in state-of-the-art facilities on the African continent for future sharing with authorized researchers. H3Africa genomics researchers should contact their closest host H3Africa Biorepository in their country or geographical region (see map below) when a collection is ready for deposit.
