There are several options for submitting plasmid data:

Submit Plasmids from a Published Article

  • Look up your article as you would search on PubMed (i.e. title, author, or PMID).
    • No PubMed ID yet? Please use the pre-publication/unpublished submission option below.
  • Addgene will provide links from your plasmids to this article.
  • Scientists will be asked to cite this article in future publications.
  • Must be logged in to start deposit.

Submit Pre-Publication or Unpublished Plasmids

  • Enter a descriptive title (can be general description or preprint title), for example:
    • Bacterial expression plasmids for production of recombinant FLAG fusion proteins
    • bioRxiv--Preprint Title
  • To hold plasmids for publication: enter HOLD + your descriptive title:
    • HOLD--Bacterial expression plasmids for production of recombinant FLAG fusion proteins
    • We can easily update the article information when the article becomes available.
  • Addgene encourages submitting pre-publication plasmids so they can be available online when the paper is published.
    • Plasmids can be linked to a peer-reviewed manuscript OR a preprint. In the case of preprint submission, we are happy to update the publication information once the manuscript is published in a peer-reviewed journal.
  • Must be logged in to start deposit.

Submit Plasmids Using a Spreadsheet

  • Recommended for depositing 15 or more very similar plasmids (e.g. gRNA plasmids in the same backbone).
  • Copy and paste your plasmid data directly into our file.
  • Email the spreadsheet back to us at [email protected] along with your plasmid sequences, maps, or GenBank files, and shipping address.
    • We can accept sequence files in any format.
