Addgene-15-year-annivesraryFifteen Years of Plasmid Sharing 

The last few months brought many milestones to Addgene: our 15 year anniversary last week and adding the final touches to our new office in Watertown, MA (check out our virtual office and lab tour!).

In our new (and bigger) space, we’ll be able to bring more projects to the table. We now have the capacity to grow our virus production, carry out new reagent sharing and research projects, and continue to expand our educational resources. To learn more about how Addgene has grown in the last 15 years and what we have in store for the future, read Joanne Kamens's blog post, "Celebrating 15 Years of Scientific Sharing." We’re very excited to begin another year of scientific sharing!
