The Native BioData Consortium (NBDC) is a nonprofit organization of leading researchers and Indigenous members of tribal communities that are focused on increasing the understanding of Native American genomic issues. The founders of the NBDC are Native American and/or have close relationships to current Native American research. The primary purpose of the NBDC is to build a biobank repository of Native American genetic data and samples in order to further genetic research that will benefit the Native American participants while protecting the rights of the individuals and respecting their tribal sovereignty.
