The quality and efficiency of the preparation of genomic and proteomic samples is a key factor for producing high-throughput data of optimal quality. To be successful, it is critical to incorporate the most recent developments in each area, starting at the very early stage of collection and storage of samples. 

Important questions need to be addressed such as: 
• How can high quality tissue be procured? 
• Is there a way to standardize extraction and storage protocols? 
• Which new separation technologies are reasonable to adopt? 
• How can the extraction for genomic and proteomic analyses be optimized? 
• What is the best way to handle DNA and RNA samples? 
• Can long term storage issues be solved? 
• Is it possible to minimize sample loss and maximize the analyte resolution?
