IMMSA Workshop 2022

NIST Boulder, Boulder, Colorado

August 23, 2022 - August 25, 2022

The 2022 IMMSA Workshop was a NIST-hosted event focused on standards for microbiome and multi'omics measurements. This workshop brought together researchers to discuss the need for standard reference materials conducive to multi'omic measurements, improved enumeration and viability assessment, and method validation. Check out our presentation from the event and explore our resources below to learn how we support this important area of research.

Microbiome Research

ATCC's NGS standards for microbiome research are completely manufactured from high-quality, authenticated, fully sequenced ATCC cultures that are characterized by polyphasic testing. These standards support a broad array of applications ranging from method optimization to data interpretation, and they serve as superior controls for microbial community testing and assay development on any platform.

Enhanced Authentication Initiative

Reproducible research starts with credible biological materials. That’s why ATCC has made a commitment to advance authentication in life science research. Through our Enhanced Authentication Initiative, we are enriching the characterization of our biological collections with reference-quality whole-genome sequencing data and making that data available to everyone.
