Qiagen-ATCC Cell Line Land Database
Qiagen and biological materials organization ATCC have launched ATCC Cell Line Land, a database codeveloped by the companies that offers manually curated sequencing data for standardized, authenticated, and reproducible cell lines. It is intended to enable biopharma researchers to access genomic information for the most popular ATCC cell lines, primary cell lines, and tissues for use in their preclinical experiments without resorting to lengthy and costly sequencing, Qiagen said. ATCC Cell Line Land also provides detailed information about actual lots of cell lines stored in ATCC's biorepository, guaranteeing each sample's provenance and quality, Qiagen added.
The database currently features 600 of the most commonly used human and mouse cell lines from ATCC's collection. An additional 250 lines will be added every quarter, including datasets requested by customers.
