    Do patients and families understand the value of primary tissue banking in terms of expediting diagnostics, prognostics, biomarker identification and personalized treatment development. Primary tissue that is fresh frozen contains both DNA and RNA (the latter is more and more being tied to the primary development of melanoma tumors). Four medical institutes are ready to bank these tumors and gather annotation for both public and private research that attains Internal Review Board approval.
