Human Reference Genome - J. Craig Venter Institute

The Human Reference Genetic Material Repository makes available DNA from a single individual, J. Craig Venter, whose genome has been sequenced and assembled. The DNA samples are prepared from a lymphoblastoid cell line established at Coriell Cell Repositories from a sample of peripheral blood. The DNA samples are available in 50 microgram aliquots. The lymphoblastoid cell line is not available for distribution.


May 2015 - An Apparently Healthy iPSC line (GM25430) derived from J. Craig Venter fibroblasts is now available through the NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository.  Click here for details.
