Study Description

The iPSCORE Resource of human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) was created as part of the Next-Gen Consortium funded by the NHLBI. The overarching purpose of the iPSCORE Resource is to provide a large collection of hiPSCs for use in studying the impact of genetic variation on molecular and physiological phenotypes. This Resource is being used in a number of ongoing studies for which genomic data will be generated and deposited into public repositories and linked through dbGaP. A total of 273 individuals have participated in the study for which 222 have had hiPSCs generated from fibroblasts (available through WiCell (http://www.wicell.org/)). Of the 273 individuals, 181 are part of 55 families that include 24 monozygotic twin pairs and 5 dizygotic twin pairs, allowing for the incorporation of familial relationships into genetic analyses. Germline DNA has been sequenced from blood or fibroblast samples for all 273 individuals (this study) and other genomic data (RNA-seq, DNA methylation, and genotype arrays) has been ... (Show More)
