Detailed process-event schema for Gaslini BIT data management. The biobank management system consists of the main process types: (A-left) 'Patient Management', (A-right) 'Sample Management', and (B) 'Genomic Analyses'. Through 'Patient Management' we track patient creation and update together and Clinical Information periodical update. 'Sample Management' provides us events for sample creation and update, aliquot delivery and for storing quality control reports on DNA/RNA extractions. Each data instance is described by a set of metadata customized on the basis of SOP requirements and standards. 'Genomic Profiling' is made of two sub-processes to track each step of Microarray and CGH analyses, and further processing steps. Only the Microarray process type is fully detailed in the picture.
