High-quality DNA extraction is the critical starting point to creating a complete reference-grade genome. ATCC uses several proprietary protocols to obtain high-molecular-weight extractions from our microbial portfolio; the method chosen is dependent on the organism undergoing extraction. For select ATCC microbes, ATCC is now making next-generation sequencing (NGS)–ready DNA available for customer purchase.
