DNASU is excited to announce that we are hosting the BASIL Starter Pack, a set of 10 plasmids selected for use with the BASIL (Biochemistry Authentic Scientific Inquiry Laboratory) Curriculum This curriculum from the BASIL biochemistry consortium aims to get students to transition from thinking like students to thinking like scientists. Students will analyze proteins with known structure but unknown function using computational analyses and wet-lab techniques. BASIL is designed for undergraduate biochemistry lab courses, but can be adapted to first year (or even high school) settings, as well as upper-level undergraduate or graduate coursework. It is targeted to students in biology, biochemistry, chemistry, or related majors. Further details about the BASIL biochemistry consortium can be found on the BASIL blog The curriculum is flexible and can be adapted to match the available facilities, the strengths of the instructor and the learning goals of a course and institution. These lessons are often used as part of upper-level laboratory coursework with at least one semester of biochemistry as a pre-requisite or co-requisite. The lab has been designed for classes ranging from 10-24 students (working in teams of two or three) per lab section. This lesson can be adapted to laboratory courses for introductory biology, cell and molecular biology, or advanced biology labs.

DNASU is happy to announce the Viral Proteome Collection , consisting of 838 viral proteins from different infectious diseases. These clones are ready to be expressed using IVTT systems, with c-terminal GST tags for protein capture. They were used to study the interactions between infectious diseases and Type I Diabetes in Immunoproteomic Profiling of Antiviral Antibodies in New-Onset Type 1 Diabetes Using Protein Arrays

DNASU is a central repository for plasmid clones and collections. Currently we store and distribute over 200,000 plasmids including 75,000 human and mouse plasmids, full genome collections, the protein expression plasmids from the Protein Structure Initiative as the PSI: Biology Material Repository (PSI : Biology-MR), and both small and large collections from individual researchers. We are also a founding member and distributor of the ORFeome Collaboration plasmid collection.

Collections : DNASU provides sets of plasmids that you can purchase at a discounted price. Browse all available special collections here.

Biological Function : Browse for sets of plasmids with a particular function (e.g. glycoenzymes or GPCRs) or created for a particular purpose (e.g. all plasmids that were used for structural determination)

Empty Vector : Browse by vector characteristics such as tags and promoter. Or search for vectors using our Vector Feature Search or view all available empty vectors.

Author : Browse by person, institution or constortium that created the plasmid.

Species : Browse by species name or type (e.g. bacteria, viruses, archea or eukaryotes)
