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 DNA Polymorphism Discovery Resource, see
