Latvian Genome Data Base
Latvian Genome Data Base (LGDB) is a national biobank that gathers, maintains and process health information data and genetic material collection of Latvian population, that serves for research, prophylaxis and therapeutic purposes.
LGDB is formed by structural subunit of Latvian BioMedical Research and Study Centre – Genome Centre. The data base collects genotype and phenotype information from volunteers as well as attained biologic material (DNA, serum, plazma, etc) isolated from blood.
At the moment LGDB recruits volunteer patients from several hospitals in Latvia who are over 18, as well as healthy volunteers in different age groups. To make successful research it is crucial to have large number of people having some definite disease and healthy people from general population. Therefore, everyone can participate in formation of Genome database.
