DNA Polymorphism Discovery Resource

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), in collaboration with
the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) and its Human
Genetic Mutant Cell Repository, has developed a resource of cell lines and
DNA samples that can be used to discover DNA sequence polymorphisms.  This
resource will be comprised of cell lines and DNA samples from 450 unrelated
individuals, male and female.  It is designed to reflect the diversity in
the human population.  In addition to the complete set, predefined nested
subsets with 8, 24, 44, and 90 samples encompassing the same range of
diversity as the complete set are also available.  Summaries of the numbers
of individuals sampled from each population group will be available for the
complete set and the subsets, but no medical, phenotypic, or ethnicity
information will be associated with individual samples. The individuals
sampled include European-Americans, African-Americans, Mexican-Americans,
Native Americans, and Asian-Americans. The samples are available from the
Coriell Institute for Medical Research.  For information about ordering
these samples, see http://locus.umdnj.edu/nigms, and for information on the
