Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research


The NHGRI Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research offers DNA samples and cell lines from the populations that contributed to the International HapMap Consortium and the 1000 Genomes Project Consortium. All of the biospecimens were contributed with consent to broad data release and to their use in a wide range of genetic variation research, including studies that involve large-scale genotyping, sequencing, gene expression, epigenomics and proteomics. The samples include no identifying or clinical information, and are high-quality resources for the study of genetic variation in a range of human populations.

The NHGRI Repository houses biospecimens from 27 of the HapMap and 1000 Genomes Project population samples. The CEPH Utah samples are available through the NIGMS Repository.
