Addgene's repository contains over 80,000 plasmids. We've gathered our curated plasmid resources, kits, and depositor collections on one page to help you find what you're looking for. If you are looking for a non-plasmid item, browse our entire repository.

Plasmid Resources

Our curated resources group plasmids together based on type or application. Browse our guides to find the plasmids and science information you need before starting your experiment.


Kits are groups of plasmids that have been packaged together because they are intended for use as a set.

Kit Types

  • Fluorescent Proteins
  • Cloning
  • Genome Engineering
  • Pathways & ORFs
  • Synthetic Biology

Pooled Libraries

Pooled libraries are a set of plasmids all built with the same backbone and only differing in a small region.

Pooled Library Types

  • cDNA
  • shRNA

Depositor Collections

A modular set of plasmids from a depositor organized by a common use.
