For scientists to make insightful correlations, they need access to rigorously validated reference genomes tied back to credible biological materials. However, current publicly available, consensus-driven genomic sequences often lack authenticity, quality, completeness, or traceability, which can compromise those insightful correlations. This problem is exacerbated by the absence of standardized methods for developing and validating reference-quality genome sequences.
That’s why we have made a commitment to the scientific community to provide reference-quality, whole-genome sequencing data through the ATCC Genome Portal. Our Enhanced Authentication Initiative not only enriches the characterization of our biological collections by using next-generation sequencing but also includes making those data available to everyone.
Your research is important and we want you to be completely confident in your results. Discover how our approach to enhancing authentication can help you improve the reproducibility of your data.
