Help Us Name Blugene’s New Virus Friend

By Jennifer Tsang

UPDATE: The contest is now closed. Stay tuned to see the finalists and vote for your favorite!

Our mascot who has supported us over the past eight years now has a new friend to join them. Blugene would like you to meet... 

Hmmm, they need a name.

And we need your help in finding a good name for Blugene’s virus friend. 

During the month of January, we’ll be taking name suggestions using this form or the hashtag #BlugeneVirusFriend on Twitter. As with Blugene’s name, we’d like to give their virus friend a gender neutral name.

The Addgenies will choose up to four finalists and we’ll ask you to vote for your favorite name.

We hope you submit your best ideas because the finalists will receive some newly designed Addgene swag.

Have fun!
