Addgene is a nonprofit plasmid repository.
We store and distribute high-quality plasmids from your colleagues.
Addgene’s mission is to accelerate research and discovery by improving access to useful research materials and information. We facilitate the sharing of high-quality scientific materials, research reproducibility, and open science by archiving and distributing DNA-based research reagents and associated data to scientists worldwide. Our repository contains over 80,000 plasmids, including special collections on CRISPR, fluorescent proteins, and ready-to-use viral preparations. There is no cost for scientists to deposit plasmids, which saves time and money associated with shipping plasmids themselves. All plasmids are fully sequenced for validation and sequencing data is openly available. We handle the appropriate Material Transfer Agreements (MTA) with institutions, facilitating open exchange and offering intellectual property and liability protection for depositing scientists. Furthermore, we curate free educational resources for the scientific community including a blog, eBooks, video protocols, and detailed molecular biology resources.
Our curated resources group plasmids together based on type or application. Browse our collection to find the plasmids and science information you need before starting your experiment.
Addgene also provides ready-to-use AAV and lentiviral preparations of popular plasmids as a service to scientists. Addgene's viral service provides high-quality and high-titer viral preparations.
