In addition to individual plasmids and individual labs, Addgene also distributes plasmids both in sets or “kits” and on behalf of academic consortiums.

The Center for Cancer Systems Biology (Dana Farber Cancer Institute)-Broad Human Kinase ORF collection from Addgene consists of 559 distinct human kinases and kinase-related protein ORFs available both as a kit or as individual clones.
The Myristoylated Kinase Library was contributed by Jean Zhao’s laboratory at Harvard and consists of 192 human kinase and kinase-related open reading frames (ORFs) cloned into a retroviral vector that adds a myristoylation sequence and flag-epitope tag to each ORF (pWZL Neo Myr Flag).
DECIPHER libraries are bar-coded lentiviral shRNA libraries optimized for RNAi Genetic Screens in pooled format. They are made by Cellecta and cover 15,000 human and 10,000 mouse genes.
The Fire Lab has developed a large set of vectors for C. elegans research, available as an entire kit of 288 plasmids or individually.
The Susan Lindquist laboratory of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Whitehead Institute for Biomedical Research has deposited a set of Gateway destination vectors for high-throughput genetic analysis in S. cerevisiae.
This kit contains plasmids for dual recombinase-mediated cassette exchange (dRMCE)- an efficient, scalable, flexible tool to introduce tags, reporters and mutant coding regions into an endogenous locus of interest.
Members of the Zinc Finger Consortium have deposited reagents for engineering and expressing zinc finger proteins with Addgene.
Labs from the Center for Genomic Engineering (CGE) at the University of Minnesota have deposited plasmids with Addgene.
Addgene works with the Cell Migration Consortium (CMC) to help distribute plasmids from CMC labs.
The Structural Genomics Consortium has archived their growing collection of 500 expression plasmids with Addgene. Empty backbones derived at the SGC are also available to request from Addgene.
Addgene is working with The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) along with individual laboratories to assemble a Parkinson's disease (PD) plasmid resource for the research community.
The Krüppel-like factors (KLFs) are a family of at least 17 DNA binding transcriptional regulators with diverse roles in processes such as cell proliferation, differentiation, inflammation, metabolism, fibrosis, atherosclerosis, and carcinogenesis. Addgene is collaborating with the KLF community to build this resource.
