ERCC 2.0: Developing a New Suite of RNA Controls


In July 2014, ERCC members initiated the ERCC 2.0 effort to develop an updated suite of RNA controls that will keep pace with advances in RNA measurement technologies and scientific discoveries.


Requested RNA Control products include:

  • Transcript isoforms;
  • New and improved messenger RNA mimics and mixture formulations;
  • microRNA and other small RNA molecules; and
  • Cancer fusion transcripts.

ERCC technical working groups are developing design specifications, RNA control products, and analysis methods. If you are interested in participating in the ERCC 2.0 effort, please contact sarah.munro [at] (Sarah Munro) to join the ERCC email list for announcements of activities.


Materials from the ERCC 2.0 Workshop held in July 2014 are available here:
