One of my colleagues already has the plasmid I want. Can he or she provide it to me? Or can I get the MTA through Addgene?

The Material Transfer Agreement that is part of the order prohibits your colleague from transferring the plasmid to people outside of his/her lab. To receive the plasmid through Addgene, you will need to place an order on our website and have a new MTA signed by your institution. Alternatively, you can contact the institution that originally deposited the plasmid and ask them for permission to receive it from your colleague. Addgene is not authorized by the institutions that deposit with us to grant such permissions.
