Finding the best plasmid for your research can be a daunting challenge. With over 80,000 deposited plasmids from around the world, it can be hard to find your favorite gene, promoter, serotype, or a myriad of other things. That’s why we’ve built a new and improved search engine to help make this task a faster, easier, and frustration-free experience. Along with the updated search, we’ve also revamped our homepage and mascot Blugene (check back on December 5 to learn more about this!).
