Authentication Training Seminar

The seminar slides are designed as a short, engaging presentation about cell line authentication. Topics include why authentication is important, the impact of misidentified cell lines, and a brief description of STR profiling.

At the end of the slide deck is a figure showing the various cell line problems that occur with time in culture, with a short explanation of each problem.
