ASM Microbe 2021
World Microbe Forum Virtual EventJune 20, 2021 at 5:30 am ET - June 24, 2021 at 2:00 pm ET
ASM Microbe showcases the best microbial sciences in the world and provides a one-of-a-kind forum to explore the complete spectrum of microbiology from basic science to translation and application. This year, ASM Microbe will be held as a virtual event as part of World Microbiome Forum. Join us at the virtual event to learn more about our coronavirus products and custom services, antimicrobial-resistant strains, microbiome research solutions, molecular standards, and more! While you are there, be sure the attend our iPoster sessions and Industry & Science Symposium. Check out our resources below to explore our high-quality standards that support your incredible research.
Can't attend the meeting but would like to speak to one of ATCC’s representatives about a product or service? Make an appointment with us so we can discuss your needs.
The ATCC Genome Portal: Authenticity and Traceability for Microbial Genomes
Industry & Science Symposium
Sunday, June 20, 2021 at 12:30 pm ET – 1:00 pm ET
The lack of standards for genomic data leads to potential errors as researchers attempt to interpret their genomic information. To address this issue, we’ve implemented a robust next-generation sequencing and genome assembly workflow to enrich the characterization of our collection of biological materials. Watch our symposium to learn more about ATCC’s approach to whole-genome sequencing, assembly, and annotation for producing high-quality, authenticated reference genomes.Read the full abstract
Why Biological Collections Are Essential: Responding to Public Health Threats through Global Biological Resource Programs
Marco Riojas, PhD
Senior Scientist, BEI Resources
Monday, June 21, 2021 at 6:35 am - 6:45 am
During critical public health emergencies such as SARS, Zika, Ebola, MERS, and H1N1, scientists on the frontlines of these devastating outbreaks need fast access to authenticated controls for developing diagnostic tools and novel therapeutics. Biological collections like ATCC and BEI Resources are essential to meeting this need as they provide standardized and fully characterized biological resources to the scientific community. In this presentation, Dr. Riojas will briefly describe who ATCC and BEI Resources are and will detail our responses to recent infectious disease threats.
As the world works together to end the COVID-19 pandemic, ATCC is continuing its mission to provide the high-quality, authenticated material and data needed to create novel therapeutics, vaccines, and diagnostic tools. Through our accelerated efforts, we have expanded our portfolio to encompass a variety of resources to support your essential research, including heat-inactivated preparations, genomic and synthetic nucleic acids, polyclonal antibodies, microbial strains for cross-reactivity testing, and cell lines and supporting media for virus propagation. Explore our coronavirus resources today, and be sure to explore the ATCC Genome Portal to access the whole-genome sequences of our SARS-CoV-2 strains.Find COVID-19 resources
