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 Please use the pre-publication/unpublished submission option below.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Submit Pre-Publication or Unpublished Plasmids

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.

Submit Plasmids Using a Spreadsheet

  • Recommended for depositing 10 or more plasmids. If you have more than 75 plasmids, contact us at [email protected].
  • Copy and paste your plasmid data directly into our file.
  • Email the spreadsheet back to us at [email protected] along with:
    • Addgene account username. In order for the plasmids to appear in your Addgene account under My Plasmids, we need to know your Addgene account username.
    • Shipping address and phone number.
    • Plasmid sequences or GenBank files. We can accept sequence files in any format. We encourage submission of QUEEN-generated GenBank files (Mori and Yachie, 2021).
    • Distribution status for your plasmids - Hold for Publication or Distribute pending QC.
    • The name of the Principal Investigator and Organization where these constructs were first created.
