The Addgene repository: an international nonprofit plasmid and data resource.
Bottom Line: The library includes a large number of plasmid tools for use in a wide variety of research areas, such as empty backbones, lentiviral resources, fluorescent protein vectors and genome engineering tools.The Addgene Repository database is always evolving with new plasmid deposits so it contains currently pertinent resources while ensuring the information on earlier deposits is still available.Extensive educational materials and information are provided by the database curators to support the scientists that are accessing the repository's materials and data.

Mentions: The library is curated into convenient collections to allow requesting scientists to more easily browse plasmids for experimental design and planning (Table 1). For example, one of the most popular collections pages is the Plasmid Backbone Guide (addgene.org/empty-backbones), which helps requestors choose among the library's 2,500 empty backbones (Figure 2). Examples of other highly accessed pages include the Fluorescent Protein Guide (addgene.org/fluorescent-proteins), Lentiviral Plasmid Collection (addgene.org/lentiviral), Popular Plasmids (addgene.org/popular-plasmids) and Genome Engineering Guide (addgene.org/genome_engineering).
