1 million plasmids sharedOne Million Plasmids Shared!

In our first year as a plasmid repository, we had just a handful of deposits and requests. Now, we’ve exceeded a total of one million plasmids shared. While we’re proud to have such a large impact on scientific sharing, we couldn’t have done it without you! In the last few weeks, we've enjoyed seeing the excitement around this milestone on social media. Thank you for depositing your plasmids and promoting reagent sharing.
What's next for Addgene? In a month, we'll be moving into a bigger space so that we can make an even bigger impact on reagent sharing. We'll also be publishing our free Science Career GuideAnd lastly, we're always looking to expand the repository so that we can reach more scientists: if you are looking for a plasmid that we don't have, fill out our suggest a plasmid form
