ATCC Collection

Description: These 38 digital cell lines include cell birth, death, and maximum (2-D) cell density parameters in normoxic conditions, based upon the published SOPs published at the NCI Physical Sciences in Oncology Network (PS-ON) Bioresource Core Facility (PBCF). It is our hope that other curators will take over and expand some of these digital cell lines.
