Well, we all know now not to trust investment banks and such like, but how about biobanks ? They deal with genetic and medical data more than with money (although they need some of the latter, too), but they also depend on the trust of the people who "pay in". In a news feature in Current Biology, out this week, I have compared three different kinds of biomedical databanks and looked at their trust issues.
