Tools for Bioinformatics

Combine the power of physical standards with state-of the-art bioinformatics

ATCC has collaborated with One Codex to bring microbiome research to a completely new level by combining the power of both physical laboratory standards with state-of-the-art bioinformatics. The One Codex platform, powered by a database containing roughly 83,000 whole genomes, provides microbial identification with best-in-class accuracy. Moreover, ATCC has worked in conjunction with One Codex to develop an ATCC Microbiome Standards analysis tool, including:

  • Pre-loaded metadata from ATCC Microbiome Standards
  • Sequences for shotgun or 16S comparative analysis
  • Automated quality scores assessing true positives, false positives, and relative abundance
  • Data management, storage, and graphing capabilities
