Genotyping data now complete for all lines.
The NIH Stem Cell Characterization Facility is dedicated to characterizing and comparing the available federally approved human embryonic stem cell lines. Its primary aim is to establish standards for all aspects of the culture process, as well as quality control and monitoring.
Performing these assays in a single laboratory will allow a direct, side-by-side comparison of available cell lines and will facilitate comparison with adult stem cells. These data will give scientists the information they need to make an informed choice when ordering available cell lines.
