Biobanking: A Silent Hero in the Fight Against Climate Change
In the fight against climate change, biobanking has emerged as a quiet but indispensable hero. Biobanks are repositories that store biological samples, such as tissues, cells and DNA, collected from various organisms, including plants, animals and humans. While their primary purpose is to advance medical research and health care, these collections hold significant potential in addressing environmental challenges posed by climate change.
An important role of biobanks is the preservation of genetic diversity. As climate change threatens ecosystems and species, biobanks preserve genetic material that can be used to restore and regenerate endangered populations. This genetic diversity is important for adaptation to changing environmental conditions, increasing resilience and promoting biodiversity.
In addition, biobanks enable scientists to study and understand the effects of climate change on organisms. By analyzing collected samples, researchers can monitor changes in a species' physiology, disease susceptibility, and genetic traits in response to environmental changes. Biobanks also support bioenergy research by providing access to genetic material for biofuel development. Sustainable biofuels provide a clean alternative to fossil fuels, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Biobanking may not grab the headlines in the fight against climate change, but its contribution is far-reaching. By protecting genetic diversity, enabling environmental research and facilitating sustainable solutions, biobanks play a vital role in preserving the future of our planet.

FFPE and Frozen Biospecimen Samples
FFPE (Formalin-Fixed Paraffin-Embedded) and frozen biospecimen samples are vital resources in medical research. FFPE samples involve preserving tissues in formaldehyde, followed by embedding in paraffin wax, making them suitable for long-term storage. These samples are advantageous for retrospective studies, as they retain structural integrity.
On the other hand, frozen biospecimen samples are snap-frozen and maintained at ultra-low temperatures. This method preserves biomolecules like DNA, RNA, and proteins, making them ideal for molecular analysis. However, frozen samples may degrade over time, requiring stringent storage conditions.
Researchers choose between FFPE and frozen samples based on their specific research goals. FFPE offers histological insights, while frozen samples are preferred for molecular investigations. Both sample types are invaluable in advancing our understanding of diseases and developing diagnostic and therapeutic strategies.
