Development and Evaluation of Whole Cell- and Genomic DNA-Based Microbiome Reference Standards

ATCC has developed ATCC® Microbiome Standards for use in a broad array of applications ranging from method optimization to data interpretation. These standards are fully sequenced, characterized, and authenticated mock microbial communities that mimic mixed metagenomic samples. They were developed as whole cell or nucleic acid preparations with even or staggered genomic DNA abundance, and medium or high levels of mock community complexity ranging from 10 to 20 strains per sample. Here, we explore the development and use of the ATCC® Microbiome Standards.
