   The National Institute of General Medical Sciences' Human Genetic Mutant
Cell Repository has available three DNA sample pools from its collection. Two
of the sample pools are from the Repository5s collection of CEPH (Centre
d5Etude du Polymorphism Humain) Reference Families, while a third is from the
human diversity collection. One DNA pool, NA13405, contains equal quantities
of DNA from 31 males and 31 females from the parental generation of CEPH
Amish, Utah, and Venezuelan pedigrees. A second CEPH collection DNA pool,
NA13421, contains equal quantities of DNA from 27 males and 27 females from
the collection of CEPH Utah pedigrees. The third DNA pool, NA13406, consists
of equal quantities of DNA from 13 males and 15 females from the human
diversity collection. Two individuals from each of 14 different populations
(Mayan, Karitiana, Surui, Quechua, Auca, Jemez Pueblo, and Cheyenne Indians,
Kmer Cambodian, Southern Chinese, Japanese, Druze Arab, Nasioi Melanesian,
and Biaka and Mbuti Pygmies) comprise this pool. Information about these DNA
samples is available via internet. Telnet to coriell.umdnj.edu. At the login
