heart Addgene's mission About Addgene

Our Mission

Addgene is a nonprofit organization dedicated to making it easier for scientists to share plasmids.

Addgene is reaching this goal by operating a plasmid repository for the research community. We are working with thousands of laboratories to assemble a high-quality library of published plasmids for use in research and discovery. By linking plasmids with articles, scientists can always find data related to the materials they request.
