Use of Recombinant Bacteria with Unique Tags as Spike-in Controls for the Quantification of Microbiome Content
Leka Papazisi, DVM, PhD, Principal Scientist, Microbiology R&D, Product Life Cycle, ATCC
September 12, 2022

The analysis of metagenomics data is challenging due to the technical biases introduced throughout the metagenomics workflow—from sample preparation to bioinformatic analysis. View our poster to see how ATCC is tackling this issue through the development of innovative whole-cell and genomic spike-in standards.

Translational Ramifications of Crowd-sourced Genomics Data
David Yarmosh, MS, Senior Bioinformatician, ATCC
September 12, 2022

Public genomics databases are unable to curate their immense library of submitted assembly data to ensure the utmost quality. The de facto usage of these databases in modern research coupled with the repercussions of incomplete metadata underscores the urgent need for a more stringent curation process. View our poster to see how ATCC is addressing this issue through our Enhanced Authentication Initiative.

Reference-quality sequences

Through the ATCC Genome Portal, you can easily search, access, and analyze hundreds of reference-quality genome sequences. Our optimized methodology is designed to achieve complete, circularized (when biologically appropriate), and contiguous genomic elements by using short-read (viruses) and hybrid (bacteria and fungi) assembly techniques. We then took our workflow one step further by accompanying each stage of the process with rigorous quality control analyses that ensure our data are the highest quality possible. Only the data that passes all quality control criteria are published to the ATCC Genome Portal. Visit the portal today to find the high-quality data you need for your 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.

The Need for Standards in Human Microbiome Research

The human microbiome changes over time with respect to lifestyle, the environment, and exposure to disease. This individual biology is a powerful tool for personalized healthcare and precision medicine.

Development and Evaluation of Whole Cell- and Genomic DNA-based NGS Standards

In this study, we demonstrate that ATCC NGS Standards combined with the One Codex data analysis module provide a comprehensive solution for standardizing data from a wide range of sources, and generating consensus among microbiome applications and analyses.
