Your Academic Benchling account comes with 10GB of space. Sequences and oligos do not count towards that limit.
We have an integration with Dropbox and Google Drive. There, you can store external data and link that data into Benchling.
We also offer a number of initiatives to give academic scientists more storage space:
For every user you successfully refer to Benchling, you will receive 1GB of extra space.
If you refer five users to Benchling, you'll receive Benchling Gold. Benchling Gold gives you 15GB of space and access to Benchling Sync, an enterprise feature.
