Our Mission

Facilitate innovation in biology by promoting sharing of wisdom and supporting conversations among researchers.

How We Help?

Centralizing Wisdom

Through sharing and depositing information and ideas in an open-access platform, wisdom is centralized. This will maximize convenience and minimize the cost of obtaining data and know-how as well as transferring bio-material, whether within academia or from academia to industry. With this novel centralized portal, you have easy access to all shared intelligence.

Supporting Conversation

On each plasmid page, you can comment, cite, ask questions, or even endorse the corresponding scientist with your data and publications.

Conversations happen in real-time. You can follow your favorite plasmids and receive notifications on all conversations about them. You will never miss out on any updates within the community.

Enabling Community

Our namesake comes from an interstellar cloud, a stellar nursery where new stars or planetary systems are formed. By developing MolecularCloud as an all-inclusive platform supported by intuitive tools and advanced networking features, we aim to foster and nurture researchers into an enabled community where the exchange of biomaterials and ideas can promote innovation in biology.

Who We Are?

MolecularCloud is a free and open-access platform where scientists can access, find and share plasmids, learn about their applications, and participate in conversations within the community of users. We provide the plasmid repository and management services to researchers around the world to help promote innovation in biology.

The MolecularCloud platform includes the free, online GenSmartTM Design tool, which allows users to request and modify plasmids for their own research projects. MolecularCloud also incorporates GenScript’s molecular biology portfolio, which supports the storage and distribution features of the platform with industry-leading quality.

The intellectual property of all deposited and shared material on MolecularCloud belongs to their original creator. Neither GenScript or MolecularCloud owns any part of the intellectual property. Plasmids are offered for a nominal fee to cover operational costs. Requests for any modifications or additional services will infer additional costs.
