Same Addgene, New Look - Why We Redesigned Our Homepage & Mascot

Posted by Jason Snair on Dec 5, 2019 8:49:00 AM

Did you see Blugene’s make-over and our new homepage? If you've visited Addgene’s homepage recently, you probably noticed some big changes to our site (if you haven’t, go check it out!). After months of strategizing, designing, developing, testing - and repeat - we’re proud and excited to finally share with you what we’ve been working on behind the scenes here at Addgene.

Introducing Addgene's New Search - Find Plasmids More Easily For Your Research!

Posted by Seth Kasowitz on Dec 3, 2019 6:38:00 AM

Finding the best plasmid for your research can be a daunting challenge. With over 80,000 deposited plasmids from around the world, it can be hard to find your favorite gene, promoter, serotype, or a myriad of other things. That’s why we’ve built a new and improved search engine to help make this task a faster, easier, and frustration-free experience. Along with the updated search, we’ve also revamped our homepage and mascot Blugene (check back on December 5 to learn more about this!).

Three Key Considerations For Precise Neuronal Targeting Using AAV Technologies

Posted by Susanna Bachle on Nov 27, 2019 9:03:45 AM

Understanding the biology behind brain development, learning, and behavior poses many challenges in neuroscience with many brain regions, neuronal networks, and specific neuronal populations to consider. To tease apart how different neurons impact a certain output, neuroscientists have begun to use more precise genetic tools: activators, inhibitors, sensors, recombinases, and more. With the help of adeno-associated viral vectors (AAV), neuroscientists can combine classical genetic tools with the manipulation of specific neuronal subtypes and determine how these changes affect the phenotype. Viral vectors and genetic approaches are continuously refined and developed so there are many combinations to choose from for your experiments!
