This Reference Material (RM) is intended for validation, optimization, and process evaluation purposes. It consists of a female whole human genome sample of Utah/European ancestry, and it can be used to assess performance of variant calling from genome sequencing. A unit of RM 8398 consists of a vial containing human genomic DNA extracted from a single large growth of human lymphoblastoid cell line GM12878 (labeled as HG-001) from the Coriell Institute for Medical Research (Camden, NJ). The vial contains approximately 10 µg of genomic DNA, and the DNA is in TE buffer (10 mM TRIS, 1 mM EDTA, pH 8.0).

National Institute of Standards and Technology

NIST provides over 1300 Standard Reference Materials® as well as articles and practice guides describing the development, analysis and use of SRMs.

NIST Standard Reference Materials are used by analytical laboratories in industry, academia and government in order to facilitate commerce and trade and to advance research and development. The SRMs are produced by the engineering laboratory, the material measurement laboratory, and the physical measurement laboratory at NIST. They are available for chemical composition, physical properties, and engineering materials.
