For strain requests, please give as much detail as possible such as strain number, plasmid number, or reference. Please send your request by email together with an account number if you wish to have it sent by express mail. If you wish to have it sent by express mail but do not have an account or cannot afford it - please say so and we will still process your request. Your request will be forwarded to someone in the lab and sent as soon as possible. We are commited to sending out all published reagents, any parts in the Registry of Standard Biological Parts made in our lab or used in the iGEM2005 competition, and in many cases just about anything else - just ask! If you wish to use a reagent that we have sent to another lab, that's fine too - we wouldn't mind getting an email just so we have a record of who is using what in case we can't find something or someone else at your Institution requests the same reagents. Thanks!
Some plasmids can be obtained through Addgene a not for profit service.
