ATCC® Microbiome Standards enable the optimization of metagenomics workflows and microbiome research applications,
providing reliable comparative data while improving assay consistency.
This product is ideal for environmental analyses, assay development, and as a daily run control for molecular diagnostics and microbiome applications.
Biosafety classification is based on U.S. Public Health Service Guidelines, it is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that their facilities comply with biosafety regulations for their own country.
ATCC® Microbiome Standards are mock microbial communities that mimic mixed metagenomic samples. The ABRF-MGRG metagenomics reference standard was developed and packaged in partnership with the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities (ABRF) Metagenomics Research Group (MGRG)*, an international scientific society dedicated to advancing technologies, education, communication, and reproducible research in the operations of shared scientific resources, as part of the Extreme Microbiome Project (XMP). This product comprises genomic DNA from fully sequenced**, characterized, and authenticated bacterial and archaeal species observed in various environments, including soil, freshwater, seawater, feces, and high salinity ecosystems. Further, this reference community was derived from Class I microbial genomes (Koren et al., Genome Biol 14(9):R101, 2013), was extracted to retain long fragments of gDNA, and is confirmed to be free of human DNA. Each order for this product is provided with access to run 20 analyses on One Codex, the leading bioinformatics platform for microbial genomics and metagenomics.
Specification Range: 4.25 ng/µL to 7.09 ng/µL***
*The bulk material for this product was deposited by ABRF-MGRG. The research group extracted DNA from each individual strain and mixed them in appropriate proportions.
**The reference genome for Pseudoalteromonas haloplanktis is not available.
***DNA concentrations indicate ATCC manufacturing specifications and are provided as a reference only.
