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.
