DNA Polymorphism Discovery Resource
A resource for detecting DNA sequence polymorphisms has been developed by the NIH National Human Genome Research Institute in collaboration with the NIH National Institute of General Medical Sciences and its Human Genetic Mutant Cell Repository. Designed to reflect the diversity of the human population, the resource is composed of cell lines and DNA samples from 450 unrelated individuals, both male and female. In addition to the complete set, predefined nested subsets with 8, 24, 44, and 90 samples will encompass the same range of diversity. Individuals sampled include Americans of European, African, Mexican, and Asian extraction as well as Native Americans [F.S. Collins et al., Genome Research 8(12), 1229-31, 1998].
