This update serves to clarify that Janet Warrington is the chairholder of the ERCC, not its vice president as previously reported.
NEW YORK, Jan. 30 (GenomeWeb News) - The External RNA Controls Consortium announced last week that it is looking for sites to test external RNA controls.
"At first, we will be looking for volunteers from commercial manufacturers," said ERCC chairholder Janet Warrington. The organization said applications are due March 30. Additional information can be found here.
According to the ERCC, the first phases of testing will be limited to microarray and QRT-PCR production sites. Applications for other non-manufacturing or non-production sites will be accepted later this year.
