Plasmids form a cornerstone in modern molecular and structural biology research laboratories. Considerable time, expertise and resources are expended cloning genes into the appropriate vector to express recombinant proteins for both in vivo functional studies or to produce purified proteins for biochemical studies.
Maintains a database of genetic and molecular biology data for the model higher plant Arabidopsis thaliana. Data available from TAIR includes the complete genome sequence along with gene structure, gene product information, gene expression, DNA and seed stocks, genome maps, genetic and physical markers, publications, and information about the Arabidopsis research community.
Provides access to a resource of modular, versatile and adaptable vectors for genome modification of Plasmodium spp. parasites. PlasmoGEM currently consists of >2000 plasmids designed to modify the genome of Plasmodium berghei, a malaria parasite of rodents, which can be requested by non-profit research organisations free of charge. PlasmoGEM vectors are designed with long homology arms for efficient genome integration and carry gene specific barcodes to identify individual mutants.
Provides genomics and proteomics products and services for academic and governmental research institutes, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry. Genecopoeia, Inc. is a US-based manufacturer that released into market the largest number of human full length protein coding open reading frame (ORF) cDNA clones in multiple sets of vector systems with various features which make these clones suitable for a variety of functional assays, protein expression and easy purification in many cell types as well as cell free transcription and translation coupling systems, and large scale functional genomics and proteomics studies.
Browses existing plasmids in the NCBI’s RefSeq database. pATLAS intends to assist users in identifying plasmids from high throughput sequencing (HTS) data. The repository can be browsed through the web application or build locally. Searches can be made by name, accession number, plasmid size, taxa of bacterial host, plasmid family and antibiotic resistance and virulence genes. The platform also allows users to create projects for later exploration or sharing.
A central repository for plasmid clones and collections. DNASU focuses both on storing valuable plasmids that researchers and consortiums have created and on distributing these highly-annotated plasmids and plasmid collections to researchers worldwide. The goal is for researchers to avoid the time and effort needed to reclone genes so that they can focus immediately on their experiments, thus accelerating the pace of discovery.
A community-based resource portal to facilitate search and request of plasmid clones shared with the Dana-Farber/Harvard Cancer Center (DF/HCC) DNA Resource Core. PlasmID serves as a central data repository and enables researchers to search the collection online using common gene names and identifiers, keywords, vector features, author names and PubMed IDs.
Provides information for both vector-based genomic and cell-based clones, including sequence data, map positions, gene content and distributor information. Clone DB is a relational database that enables researchers to make connections between data and physical reagents. This database maps genomic clones to RefSeq assemblies to provides additional value to the clones. All generated placements are based entirely on end sequence alignments.
