Our Future Vision

Where do we want to see the Reclone Community in the next decade?

The Reagent Collaboration Network (Reclone) is a community initiative started in 2020 to convene researchers from around the world solving the challenges many biologists face in accessing reagents for research and diagnostics. 

The originators included the developers of the Open Enzyme Collection and associated toolkits, which were synthesised and distributed globally by Free Genes at Stanford University until 2022, when that project went on hiatus. Reclone members also developed the Research in Diagnostics Toolkit during that time, specifically to support diagnostic innovation during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. 

The Reclone community now stewards the development and distribution of a number of open collections (LINK this to website reagents page) and convenes an active community through our forum, online events and Regional Hubs. Reclone is coordinated primarily by the Open Bioeconomy Lab at the University of Cambridge, a dedicated group of volunteers and the Regional Hub teams.
