The COVID-19 Biorepository has freezers full of vials filled with blood plasma, DNA and nose swabbing from people who had COVID-19. It holds 23,365 samples from over 2,100 people. The extremely cold temperatures the freezers are kept at keep the samples inside intact, preserving genetic material, proteins, immune-response molecules and cellular signals that are key to showing how the virus works in the body.
