Freshney is an excellen basic source, but the net could be more 
informative if we knew what you wanted to do with cultured cells.  From your 
backgound, I'd guess you needed some type of specialized cell.  There are a 
lot of specialized cell lines available, some well known and some not.  
Choosing the correct cell line, or even a particular subclone, may mean 
success or a great deal of wasted time.  Please inform us!
