  2. DNASU Plasmid Repository
    Resource Category : Databases -> Other Molecular Biology Databases -> Other Molecular Biology Databases

    Brief Description : The DNASU Plasmid Repository (http://dnasu.asu.edu), which contains the Protein Structure Initiative Material Repository (PSI-MR; http://psimr.asu.edu), provides centralized storage and distribution for a growing collection of 100,000 plasmids with inserts from 439 organisms in 289 vector backbones. This includes protein expression plasmids created by PSI researchers, nearly complete genomic collections of clones from Saccharomyces cerevisiae [1], Pseudomonas aeruginosa [2], Bacillus anthracis, Francisella tularensis [3], Vibrio cholorae [4], and Yersinia pestis, human and mouse genes from the ORFeome collaboration [5], and various plasmids from other researchers. The plasmid annotation, which includes the full length sequence, vector information, and associated publications, is stored in a freely available, searchable database called DNASU (http://dnasu.asu.edu). Each plasmid is also linked to a variety of additional resources, which facilitates cross-referencing of a particular plasmid to protein annotations and experimental data. Plasmid samples can be requested directly through the website for a nominal recharge fee. In order to simplify and streamline the transfer of plasmid materials to researchers, we have developed a novel strategy to avoid the most common concern encountered when distributing plasmids, namely the complexity of material transfer agreement (MTA) processing and the resulting delays this causes. The Expedited Process MTA, in which we created a network of institutions that agree to the terms of transfer in advance of a material request, eliminates these delays. By creating a repository of plasmids and expediting the process for receiving these plasmids, we strive to accelerate the accessibility and pace of scientific discovery.
