New library of human stem cells with the Brazilian genetic admixture

(University of Sao Paulo Scientific Outreach Unit) New human pluripotent stem cells lines increase the diversity of the available ones because are derived from individuals of the Brazilian population - an admixture of European, African and Native American genomic ancestry. They can serve as an in vitro system for the identification of novel leads, for testing drug toxicity and for addressing the issue of differential drug response, a phenomenon greatly influenced by genetic factors.
