ATCC Genome Portal
Enhanced Authentication Initiative
ATCC is not only enriching the characterization of our biological collections by using next-generation sequencing, we are also making those data available to everyone through the ATCC Genome Portal.
ATCC Genome Portal
The ATCC Genome Portal makes it easy to find the high-quality whole-genome sequencing data needed for your research. Using your ATCC login, you can easily search, download, and analyze hundreds of high quality genomes.
Advanced biological models
Amplify viral vaccine production
Antiviral vaccines are essential for preventing epidemic disease; however, the production of these therapeutics is often limited by low-yielding manufacturing processes. To address this, ATCC used cutting-edge CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology to develop STAT1 knockout cell lines capable of producing high-titer viral stocks. These STAT1-KO cell lines are not only good candidates for enhancing virus titers for vaccine development, but also useful tools to package lentiviral, adenoviral, and retroviral vectors for the delivery of DNA sequences into target cells for various applications such as gene therapy and cancer immunotherapy.Find vaccine development resources
Discover next-generation organoid models
During the drug discovery process, having access to models that recapitulate tumor properties is essential for predictive screening. To meet this need, ATCC has made it a priority to provide patient-derived 3-D organoid models annotated with molecular and clinical data that represent a variety of healthy and cancerous tissues. These next-generation cancer models are capable of long-term expansion in culture while remaining phenotypically and genetically stable. Further, they provide invaluable preclinical models for studying cancer and offer many advantages over existing human or non-human animal cancer models.Explore patient-derived organoids
ATCC (American Type Culture Collection) is a nonprofit, global biological resource center and standards organization and the leading developer and supplier of authenticated cells lines and microorganisms. We leverage our rich history and knowledge to provide the products, services, and resources scientists need to conduct critical life science research.
