Why submit your plasmids to our repository?
Sharing plasmids with the DF/HCC DNA Resource Core benefits you by alleviating the burden of storage, maintenance and distribution, and benefits the general research community by making plasmids available from a central source. We encourage submission of plasmids from researchers at any of the DF/HCC parent institutions and from the research community at large. Small and large collections are equally welcome.
Submitting plasmids generally involves the following three steps:
1) Gain permission from your institution to include the plasmids in the repository for distribution under specific terms (the Depositor Agreement). NOTE that this permission has already been granted by all seven DF/HCC institutions as well as several other research institutes listed here.
2) Providing us with information about the plasmids, such as maps or sequence files, growth conditions, relevant authors and publications, etc. so we are set up to handle the plasmids when they arrive. We have templates for submission of information that allow us to easily import your data into our database.
3) Submit your samples. Please DO NOT submit samples until we confirm that i) your data is entered into our computers and ii) we are ready to receive your samples.
We have standardized our submission process. This information is outlined in the following five files.
