BioSamples at the European Bioinformatics Institute
The BioSamples database aggregates sample information for reference samples (e.g. Coriell Cell lines) and samples for which data exist in one of the EBI's assay databases such as ArrayExpress, the European Nucleotide Archive or PRIDE. It provides links to assays and specific samples, and accepts direct submissions of sample information.
