Title: NextGen Consortium: Phenotyping Lipid traits in iPS derived hepatocytes Study (PhLiPS Study)      
ID:
PRJNA380849
description:
The goal of the PhLiPS study is to create a library of induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) lines and iPSC-derived hepatocytes of diverse genotypes for use in metabolic profiling and interrogating lipid phenotypes. These cell lines were created as a part of the Next Generation Genetic Association Studies (Next Gen) Program, which was a five-year, $80 million program to investigate functional genetic variation in humans by assessing cellular profiles that are surrogates for disease phenotypes. To achieve this, researchers from multiple institutions across the U.S. were awarded grants to derive iPSC lines from more than 1,500 individuals representing various conditions as well as healthy controls for use in functional genomic ("disease in a dish") research. This extensive panel includes a diverse set of age, gender, and ethnic backgrounds, and therefore will be an invaluable tool for evaluations across demographics. Further enhancing the utility of these... (for more see dbGaP study page.)
