The purpose of the American Diabetes Association (ADA), GENNID Study (Genetics of non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, NIDDM) is to establish a national database and cell repository consisting of information and genetic material from families with well-documented NIDDM (type 2 diabetes). The GENNID Study will provide investigators with the information and samples necessary to conduct genetic linkage studies and locate the genes for type 2 diabetes.
