Sector: Clinical, Food & Beverage, Microbiome, Pharmaceutical
With the undeniable variability in next-generation sequencing data, it is essential that standards are incorporated at each stage of the workflow—from sample collection to data analysis. That’s why ATCC is committed to providing the authenticated microbiome standards and data analysis solutions needed to produce reliable and reproducible results. In this webinar, we will provide an overview on the current challenges in microbiome research and will demonstrate the application of mock microbial communities in assay development and standardization.Key Points:
- Optimization at each step of the analytical process is essential to the validity and reproducibility of experimental data.
- The consistent use of controls during each step of a workflow allows users to understand where biases are introduced.
- ATCC has developed a wide range of fully sequenced and quantitative mock microbial communities that support the development and optimization of microbiome research workflows.
