The entire collection of plasmids, distributed as frozen glycerol stocks in a 96-well format, will be priced at $400 for academic/non-profit users and $800 for commercial/industry. Individual plasmids from the kit can also be ordered as bacterial cultures on agar plugs for standard plasmid pricing. You may view the individual list of plasmids in this collection here: https://www.chlamycollection.org/products/moclo-toolkit/.

From Crozet et al. (2018): “… we have developed a Modular Cloning toolkit for the green microalga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. It is based on Golden Gate cloning with standard syntax, and comprises 119 openly distributed genetic parts, most of which have been functionally validated in several strains. It contains promoters, UTRs, terminators, tags, reporters, antibiotic resistance genes, and introns cloned in various positions to allow maximum modularity. The toolkit enables rapid building of engineered cells for both fundamental research and algal biotechnology. This work will make Chlamydomonas the next chassis for sustainable synthetic biology.”
