American Diabetes Association's GENNID study (Genetics of NIDDM)

DNA samples and extensive phenotypic data are available from the American Diabetes Association's GENNID study (Genetics of NIDDM). GENNID has collected detailed family histories and a broad array of data on 170 large pedigrees, all of which contain at least one affected sib pair, with a total of 650 affected individuals and approximately 1,200 total subjects. Included are approximately 65 Caucasian, 60 Hispanic, 25 African American, and 20 Japanese American pedigrees.
