The NIGMS Human Genetic Cell Repository, sponsored by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, provides scientists around the world with resources for cell and genetic research. Established in 1972 at the Coriell Institute for Medical Research, the NIGMS Repository contains more than 11,400 cell lines, primarily fibroblasts and transformed lymphoblasts, and over 5,800 DNA samples. Currently, the NIGMS HGCR catalog also contains over 40 iPSC lines. Repository samples represent a variety of disease states, chromosomal abnormalities, apparently healthy individuals and many distinct human populations.
Data on this website and information derived from the samples in the NIGMS Repository may not be used to determine the identity of any individual who provided a sample. Please direct any questions about this policy to NIGMS@coriell.org.
