We know you're busy conducting experiments, and we're happy that we can help reduce your workload while raising the visibility of your research.

Benefits of Depositing

It's Easy and Free

There is no cost to deposit your plasmids to Addgene. Addgene will store your samples in triplicate (including one at an offsite backup facility), sequence key regions of your plasmid for validation, and handle the appropriate Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs) with your institution. Additionally, Addgene will create a webpage for your lab where you can direct scientists to request your plasmids.

Scientists requesting your plasmids will benefit from quick turnaround times, excellent customer service from PhD scientists, and the ability to find your plasmids and easily request them along with necessary plasmids from other labs.

Getting Started

  1. First select the plasmids you would like to deposit. Most labs start by depositing a few of their most frequently requested plasmids. Don't worry if your lab has a large plasmid collection. It's best to start small - you can always add more later.

  2. Next, you will add the article associated with your plasmid. We encourage deposits of published plasmids, pre-publication plasmids, and useful unpublished plasmids. Click here to add your first article and begin online submission of your plasmids.

If you have any questions about the depositing process, please see our FAQs, read our deposit process walk-through, or email [email protected] to be paired with an Addgene scientist.
