Data processing operations. Biospecimens and health data are collected with Cohort IDs. The De-identification process converts Cohort IDs into Biobank IDs in the case of biospecimens, while the process converts Cohort IDs into QA_test IDs in the case of health data. The TMM biobank stores biospecimens with Biobank IDs and health data with QA_test IDs. Genome and omics data are analyzed and stored with Biobank IDs. After the approval of a research application, datasets of minimum necessary data are extracted from the TMM biobank. The extracted datasets are combined and anonymized by ID conversion into Distribution IDs. The combined dataset is then used and shared with Distribution IDs for the approved research application
