After my lab deposited some materials, I received a questionnaire form. What is a questionnaire and why do I need to fill it out?

A questionnaire generally consists of a few questions that the Technology Transfer Office (TTO) wishes to ask of their PI before agreeing to the terms of the deposit agreement. A questionnaire can help TTOs perform their due diligence and can assist with the clearance of rights to deposit those specific plasmids with Addgene. This questionnaire is sent out by Addgene on behalf of the depositing institution’s TTO. Although a questionnaire may be helpful for certain offices, Addgene does not require that a questionnaire be used, even if the organization has a TTO.
