Gene Bank

Please contact euprim-genebank @ for information and questions concerning material availability.

If you are interested in genetic material, please also have a look at the Gene Bank of Primates of the DPZ.

The Gene Bank of Primates represents a large collection consisting of DNA, RNA and cDNA derived from a variety of non-human primates. It can be searched for species.

The costs for primate material will be covered by the EU. However, new users of the BioBanks have a higher priority for access. Be aware that the number of free samples is restricted. Costs for excessive samples may be charged to the user on prior consultation.

Eligible countries are:
EU Member States: Austria (AT), Belgium (BE), Bulgaria (BG), Cyprus (CY), Czech Republic (CZ), Denmark (DK), Estonia (EE), Finland (FI), France (FR), Germany (DE), Greece (GR), Hungary (HU), Ireland (IE), Italy (IT), Latvia (LV), Lithuania (LT), Luxembourg (LU), Malta (MT), Netherlands (NL), Poland (PO), Portugal (PT), Romania (RO), Slovakia (SK), Slovenia (SI), Spain (ES), Sweden (SE), United Kingdom (GB)
Associated Countries: Albania (AL), Croatia (HR), Iceland (IS), Israel (IL), Liechtenstein (LI), Macedonia (MK), Montenegro (ME), Norway (NO), Serbia (RS), Switzerland (CH), Turkey (TR)

The applicant country is defined by the residence country of the institute to which the group leader is affiliated to. In addition the applicant country has to be different from the host country of the requested BioBank.

User Information Form:
This form (User Information Form, MS-Word document) samples all information necessary for the EU before primate material can be delivered to you. Your data will be treated confidentially.

To enable the European Commission to evaluate the Research Infrastructures Action, to monitor the individual contracts, and to improve the services provided to the scientific community, each group leader of a user-project supported under an EC Research Infrastructure contract is requested to complete the present "User Group Questionnaire". The questionnaire must be submitted once by each user group as soon as the material samples have been obtained. Please fill in the appropriate fields: User Group Questionnaire
