Data collection arrangements
amples will be stored in the Twins Department laboratory.
The twins personal data will be kept on our secure password protected database that is kept separated from a shared drive and accessible only by certain members of DTR team. All samples, phenotype and questionnaire data will be labelled and stored anonymously and cannot be linked to the volunteer by research personnel. All other data will be stored under the unique study number on the DTR phenobase.
The TwinsUK BioBank will support any research programme providing they have a valid justified scientific requirement for the data and samples from the bank and appropriate funding for the resource is needed.
