Population Description

These cell lines and DNA samples were prepared from blood samples collected from people living in the United Kingdom who identified themselves and their parents as Telugu.

Referring to Populations

It is important to refer to this community as "Indian Telugu in the UK" when describing describing these samples in articles or presentations. Including the full name reinforces the point that the sample set does not represent all Telugu people, whose population history is complex. The population should not be described merely as “South Asian” or “Indian”, since both of those designators encompass many communities.

The full population descriptor is Indian Telugu in the UK and the abbreviation is ITU.

Additional guidance about how to refer to the populations can be found at Guidelines for Referring to the Populations in Publications and Presentations.
