  ENCODE Common Cell Types

To facilitate integration of data between the contributing research groups, the ENCODE Consortium has identified common cell types for use by ENCODE contributors. These cell types are divided into two Tiers. Tier1 cells are of higher priority, and should be used within experiments before Tier2 cells. Rationale for the selection is described on the NHGRI ENCODE Common Cell Types page. Additional cell types beyond Tier1 and Tier2 may be used, but must be registered with the DCC before submitting data. These additional cell types are designated Tier3.
