DNA Distribution ready to ship

The 2009 spring DNA distribution will ship by early next week. All iGEM teams that have provided a shipping address will receive the distribution.
iGEM 2009 techs with spring DNA distribution.
    Important details:
  • The distribution contains (3) 384-well plates.
  • Kits will be shipped via USPS for US teams and via DHL for non-US teams. Tracking numbers will be available on request.
  • The distribution does not contain the complete set of parts in the Registry. Instead it is made up of a smaller subset of high quality parts and iGEM 2008 team favorite parts.
Q: What do we do with these plates?
Find out how to locate parts in the plates and what to do with them on the Registry 2009 DNA distribution page.
Many thanks to our iGEM 2009 technicians, Paul, Jess, and Vinoo, (pictured above) for their hard work in preparing this year's DNA distribution.
