Is there a source (say a book) that lists the cell lines available and 
their specific characteristics?  This would be very handy, especially 
since most of the cell line info I get for my work is based on reading of 
the use of a given cell line in another study.  In addition, in working 
on my prelims, I am working on a research proposal that requires work 
with several cell lines.  I chose two lines that I am specifically 
familiar with rather than because they had some special aspect of use.

Is there such a source?
