Multiple studies have shown that 20-35% of popular cell lines have been contaminated by intraspecies/interspecies cell lines, mycoplasma and/or viruses.
Did you know PCR-based STR profiling assays currently used for Cell Line Authentication (CLA) may not be able to detect up to 15% cross-contamination in cell cultures?
In this webinar, Dr. Sheng Guo, Executive Director of Systems Biology at Crown Bioscience discusses using deep sequencing for cell line and biosample authentication.
Dr. Sheng Guo joined Crown Bioscience in 2011 as the Executive Director, Systems Biology and also leads on all associated services. Prior to joining Crown Bioscience, Sheng worked at Syngenta and Boehringer Ingelheim and has extensive expertise in tumor model genomics, preclinical statistics, predictive biomarker discovery, NGS-based product design, and industrial software development. Dr. Guo received his Ph.D. in Genomics and Computational Biology from the University of Pennsylvania, and B.Sc. in Biochemistry from Nankai University.
