Launch of the Coriell Catalog’s new SNP Search Tool


NIGMS Repository catalog users now have a new tool to identify cell lines and DNA needed for their research. SNP Search allows users to search for a specific genetic variant among Coriell-housed samples that were included in the Phase 3 1000 Genomes Project whole genome sequencing dataset (see more details here). With this tool, users can query catalog-available cell lines and DNA samples for individual genetic variants using Reference SNP IDs (rsID).The new SNP Search will return genotypes of samples in the Coriell collection along with relevant demographic information for the samples. The Phase 3 1000 Genomes Project samples housed at Coriell consist of cell lines and DNA samples from the NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository and the NHGRI Sample Repository. These samples include a selection of CEPH collection samples, held by the NIGMS Repository. The CEPH collection comprises several large reference families and their accompanying pedigrees, which have been crucial in the construction of the human genetic map and the characterization of DNA polymorphisms. See all available samples from the CEPH collection here, which is comprised of individual DNA samples, cell lines, DNA sample pools, and family kits.
