    This is the fifth topic in the webinar series on ‘Sanger Sequencing & Fragment Analysis made easy’

    The study of human development and diseases relies heavily on the analysis of dissociated human cell lines grown in culture. However, an increasingly acknowledged problem is that cells grown in vitro can become misidentified or contaminated with other unrelated cell lines. Analysis of highly variable short tandem repeats (STRs), provides a simple, inexpensive and highly specific genetic “fingerprint” of a cell line.

    In this webinar, we describe a complete workflow for human Cell Line Authentication by combining Applied Biosystem’s AmpFlSTR Identifiler STR analysis kits, gold-standard CE instrumentation and Gene Mapper analysis software.
