Building a Zika virus vaccine: From global health to virus–like particle technology

Currently, there are no vaccines approved for use in the prevention of Zika. In this webinar, we discuss the development of several novel Zika virus-like particle (Zika-VLP)–based vaccine candidates and will provide data demonstrating their ability to induce a strong immune response and provide a high level of protection against Zika virus in murine animal models.

EMT and MET reporter cell lines: Elevating biological models of metastasis

Epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and its reverse (MET) are physiological mechanisms implicated in cancer metastasis. Watch this webinar to learn how CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing technology was applied to develop a number of RFP- or GFP-tagged reporter cell lines to study EMT and MET phenomena.

CRISPR/Cas9-engineered 3-D Tissue Culture Models of Drug-resistant Melanoma

Watch the presentation to learn how CRISPR/Cas9 genome-editing technology was used to introduce a specific point mutation that confers drug resistance into A375 melanoma line, and consider data indicating that this isogenic cell line is resistant to MEK and BRAF inhibitors and sensitive to therapies targeting upstream and downstream elements of the Ras/Raf-MAPK signaling pathway.

The Application of hTERT-immortalized Primary Cells in Toxicological Assays

Developing cell-based assays can be problematic; the cells must be physiologically relevant for the assay to be predictive, yet sufficiently abundant to be included in the assay without introducing interexperimental variability. Watch this webinar to learn how hTERT-immortalized primary cells exhibit the growth characteristics of cell lines while providing the physiological attributes of primary cells.

iPSC-derived Primary Cells Expand Your Cell-based Assays With an Unlimited, Biologically Relevant Source

Differentiated induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC)-derived cells fulfill the need for a consistent source of cells and physiological relevance. This webinar provides data demonstrating how differentiated iPSC-derived cells can be incorporated into immunoassays or further differentiated into cell types such as osteocytes, chondrocytes, and adipocytes.

Prevent Analysis Variability by Using NGS-authenticated Microbial Genomes

As part of our commitment to advancing authentication in life science research, ATCC has implemented a robust NGS and genome assembly workflow to enrich the characterization of biological materials in our collection. In this webinar, we detail the standardized process and quality control criteria that we use to produce reference-quality genomes.
