STR Profile Search (human)

The DSMZ, together with the ATCC, JCRB, and RIKEN repositories, have generated comprehensive databases of short tandem repeats (STR) cell line profiles. Use of a consensus STR panel now enables multi-center interactive searches, work piloted at the DSMZ. To render it user friendly, a simple search engine for interrogating STR cell line profiles is available. Aided by simple prompts, users can input their own cell line STR data to retrieve best matches with authenticated cell lines listed on the database.
