NIGMS Distributes Cell Lines

The Human Genetic Mutant Cell Repository of the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) is distributing lymphoblastoid cell lines representing the 8 CEPH reference families in the Genethon subset and the 15 CEPH reference families in the Cooperative Human Linkage Center (CHLC) subset. Family relationships have been verified by Southern blot analysis at the Coriell Cell Repositories and approved by CEPH. The NIGMS repository also distributes DNA from parents in all Genethon and CHLC subsets and from entire families 102, 884, 1331, 1333, and 1341. Information about DNA and cultures, as well as additional CEPH reference families, can be obtained from the online catalog via Internet (telnet to coriell.umdnj.edu; at the login prompt, type online). To access the catalog via modem: 609/757-9728.

Human Genome Project 1990–2003

The Human Genome Project (HGP) was an international 13-year effort, 1990 to 2003. Primary goals were to discover the complete set of human genes and make them accessible for further biological study, and determine the complete sequence of DNA bases in the human genome. See Timeline for more HGP history.
