A Tale of 3 Mummies: A Microbiome Analysis of Life in the Peruvian Andes 1,000 Years Ago

In this webinar, the gut microbiome of three pre-Columbian Andean mummies was characterized using 16S rRNA gene high-throughput sequencing and metagenomics to understand the preservation and evolution of commensal and pathogenic microorganisms and the metabolic processes during the natural mummification of the human gut.

Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE): A Growing Superbug Population

The emergence and spread of multidrug-resistant organisms in both community- and hospital-acquired infections has resulted in increased morbidity, mortality, and health-care expense. In this webinar, we will discuss the emergence of multidrug-resistant infections with a particular emphasis on the emergence and global spread of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteraeae strains.

Discovering ATCC Primary Immune Cells

This webinar presents data showing that ATCC marrow- and blood-derived primary immune cells can be induced to differentiate into various hematopoietic lineages and then used to investigate the immunosuppressive capabilities of primary and hTERT-immortalized mesenchymal stem cells.

Functionally Characterized Human PBMCs - An Improved In Vitro Model of Human Immune Response

The majority of PBMC applications rely on highly complex cell-based assays; however, phenotypic and functional variability of human PBMCs makes the development and validation of these assays difficult. This webinar demonstrates that pre-screening characterization of lot-specific functional activity of PBMCs is invaluable for selecting cells to address individual experimental goals.

Improving the Detection of Shiga Toxin-producing Escherichia coli

In the food industry, providing safe products and protecting the company brand is of the utmost importance. In this webinar, we discuss the growing concern on food-borne illnesses, the importance of quality control strains in food safety, and the Shiga toxin–producing Escherichia coli (STEC) reference materials from ATCC that support this need.

Neural Progenitor Cells - Models of Toxicology for the 21st Century

Neural progenitor cells (NPCs) are an attractive model to study neurological development, neurotoxicity, and diseases of the nervous system. This webinar will explore the expression of genes associated with the differentiation of NPCs in dopaminergic differentiation media and validates that NPCs are suitable for drug screening in a viability assay and high-content imaging analysis.
