The National Institute of General Medical Sciences' (NIGMS) Human Genetic 
Mutant Cell Repository has regional mapping panels available for distribution 
as cell cultures or DNA. These mapping panels, consisting of 5 to 10 
human/rodent somatic cell hybrids with deletion or derivative human 
chromosomes, are available for chromosomes 4, 5, 11, 15, 17, and 18. Regional 
mapping panels for additional human chromosomes will be available in the near 
future. The panels have been characterized cytogenetically by G-banded 
chromosome analysis, in situ hybridization using biotinylated total human DNA, 
and, in some cases, with chromosome-specific painting probes. Molecular 
characterization included Southern blot hybridization and/or PCR with p and q 
arm probes and primers. Information about these cultures and DNA is available 
via Internet. Telnet to At the login prompt, type: online.
