Standardization to Ensure Accuracy

The Genome in a Bottle Consortium has selected several genomes to produce and characterize as reference materials. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has developed NIST Reference Materials from these genomes, which are DNA extracted from a large homogenized growth of B lymphoblastoid cell lines from the NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository at Coriell Institute for Medical Research.

DNA and cell lines are available. iPSCs are also available for select lines.
