Microbiome standards are important both for the evaluation and effective standardization of methodologies used in microbiome sequencing and bioinformatics analysis.  In this document, the genomes (strains) included in two Microbiome Standard products, ATCC® MSA-1002™ or ATCC® MSA-1003™ commercially distributed by American Type Culture Collection (ATCC®)*, were identified using the TrueBac ID system and the detailed results are outlined below.

If you already have 16S-NGS data generated with the ATCC Microbiome Standards, you can directly analyze them using the EzBioCloud Microbiome portal. The detailed instructions are here.
