Build Your Plasmid - THE GAME

Build your plasmid is a free educational resource created by Dr. Marco Straccia to teach, in an attractive way, gamma-retrovirus or lentivirus-based ex-vivo gene therapy’ strategies to undergraduate university students.

However it can be used and modified for non commercial reuse, to teach also molecular biology, genetic engineering or any other matter that you can figure out at any educational level.

It would be great if anyone, who uses this resource to generate new ones, will freely share their own projects with us, in order to exchange ideas and improve the life science and biomedical education of our future generations.

All suggestions, tips and critiques to improve the educational nature of this material are welcome and if you want to receive the modifiable .ppt file, please feel free to contact us at:


This game has been created using free available information from:

-Plasmid 101: A Desktop Resource by Addgene. March 2017 (3rd Edition)

-The portal to gene-specific content based on NCBI's RefSeq project.

-Nikon's MicroscopyU website features technical support and timely information about all aspects of optical microscopy, photomicrography, and digital imaging.
