Overview: Repositories are a great way for labs to store and share protocols, primers, or sequences in one place. Create repositories for each of these entities and share them with members of your lab. Give your collaborators “Read” permission to view files as read only files.

Creating a repository of primers, sequences, or protocols.

Click the projects icon and create a new project. Name the project to fit your needs.


Add collaborators to the project to give others access to your repository. If your lab is an organization on Benchling, you can add the organization as a collaborator.

Pro Tip: Enable different types of access for data within a project:

  • READ: Can view files in your project, but cannot make changes 
  • WRITE: Can view and edit the project 
  • ADMIN: Can add collaborators to the project, in addition to viewing, editing, or deleting the project
