Our goal was to create a one-stop reference guide for plasmids. We’ve combined our Plasmids 101 blog posts from the last year with some additional resources to create one downloadable PDF you can save to your desktop for easy reference. Highlights include our guide to fluorescent proteins, information about promoters and ORIs, and tips for naming your plasmids.
The Plasmids 101 eBook is designed to educate plasmid lovers and scientists of all levels and serves as an introduction to plasmids, their major common elements, and some of their uses. We've also included helpful hints and tricks to keep in mind when utilizing these plasmid tools in your lab.
We'll keep working hard to bring you more of the molecular biology and cloning resources you need to aid your bench work. Want us to cover a specific topic? Or have a question you'd like our team to answer? Let us know in the comments and we'll try to tackle it in an upcoming post.
