Spring News from Addgene 

Image from iOS (30)-3As we transition from winter to spring, we wanted to provide you with some quick updates from Addgene. With our recent move to Watertown, MA behind us, we can now focus on other exciting changes to make our processes easier for you. We’re working on making the website and our blog easier to use in the upcoming year and thinking about new ways that we can better help the scientific community.

Are you doing some spring cleaning in the lab and digging through your freezer? If you find plasmid tools that you think are useful for other scientists, consider sharing your plasmids through Addgene. And if you’re looking for something we don’t have, please fill out our suggest a plasmid or viral service suggestion forms.
