Introduction to ATCC Microbiome Standards

Introduction to ATCC Microbiome Standards

The complexities involved in 16S rRNA and shotgun metagenomic analysis methods pose significant challenges for microbiome research. Significant biases can be introduced during PCR amplification, library preparation, sequencing, and analysis. One of the primary obstacles in assay standardization is the limited availability of reference materials. To support this need, ATCC has developed microbiome reference standards from fully sequenced and characterized ATCC strains. To further enhance the use of these standards, ATCC has collaborated with One Codex to develop an easy-to-use data analysis module that enables researchers to analyze both shotgun and 16S rRNA data quickly and accurately while eliminating the biases associated with data analysis. In this webinar, we will discuss the need for standards in microbiome research, the development and use of the ATCC® Microbiome Standards, and how to analyze these standards using the One Codex data analysis platform.
