NHGRI

Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research


The NHGRI Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research offers DNA samples and cell lines from the populations used for the International HapMap Project, the HapMap 3 Project and the 1000 Genomes Project. All of the samples were contributed with consent to broad data release and to their use in many future studies, including for extensive genotyping and sequencing, gene expression and proteomics studies, and all other types of genetic variation research. The samples include no identifying or phenotypic information, and are high-quality resources for the study of genetic variation in a range of human populations.

The map above represents all 28 populations in both the HapMap and 1000 Genomes Projects.  The NHGRI Repository houses samples from 27 of these populations.  The CEPH Utah samples are available through the NIGMS Repository (https://catalog.coriell.org/1/NIGMS).

Over 3700 unique cell culturesand DNA samples
