Every quarter we highlight a subset of the new plasmids in the repository through our hot plasmids articles. These brief articles provide a synopsis of a plasmid or group of plasmids' functions and applications. We hope that these articles make it easier for you to find and use the plasmids you need. You can find all the hot plasmids from 2017 below. With over 50,000 plasmids, we can't write posts for every great plasmid that comes into the repository, but be sure to let us know if you'd like to write about your plasmids in a future blog post. No time to read?
