    High Molecular Weight DNA Now Available from NIGMS and NHGRI Collections

    The NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository (HGCR) and NHGRI Sample Repository for Human Genetic Research (SRHGR) now offer high molecular weight (HMW) DNA samples isolated from cell lines in the collections. HMW DNA is useful for long-read next-generation sequencing and studies that investigate large-scale genomic variation such as structural variation.

    Variation in genes associated with viral entry of SARS-CoV-2 unlikely to influence COVID-19 morbidity and mortality

    In a study published in the journal Infection, Genetics and Evolution, scientists analyzed genetic variants from publicly available datasets including the 1000 Genomes Project to determine whether differences in genetic variation across populations may account for the observation that certain populations and ethnic groups are disproportionately affected by COVID-19.

    New SNP Search Tool

    NHGRI 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).
