National Laboratory for the
of Israeli Populations
The National Laboratory for the Genetics of Israeli
Populations (NLGIP) was established in January 1995 by
Academy of Sciences and Humanities as the national human cell
lines and DNA research biobank of Israel.
The NLGIP is located at the
Sackler Faculty of Medicine, on the Tel-Aviv
University campus. The laboratory is a biobank for human
cell lines, representing the unique and large ethnic variation of the Israeli
populations. The NLGIP focuses on collecting, establishing and maintaining
human B-lymphoblastoid cell lines and matching DNA samples from healthy
donors representing the various Jewish and Arab ethnic groups in Israel.
The human B-lymphoblastoid cell lines and
DNA samples in the NLGIP collection may be used for research purposes only.
Commercial use is not allowed.
follows the ELSI standards recommended by the Human Genome Organization.
All donors are healthy adults who gave informed consent for research of their
DNA and cell lines. Our activities are approved and supervised by the Institutional Review Board of Tel-Aviv University.

European Biobanking and Biomolecular Resources
Research Infrastructure (BBMRI).
Some of our human cell lines were
contributed to CEPH
Human Genome Diversity Cell Line Panel in France
and to the Coriell
Cell Repositories in the USA.
