Addgene Newsletter, January 2020

New year, new look, and new research tools

We hope your new year is off to a good start! 

We wrapped up the last year with some big changes to our website: the new search engine, the homepage update, and our mascot Blugene’s new look. With these changes, we hope to continue making your search for reagents and educational resources easier and faster. To learn more about some of the behind-the scenes work that went into these changes, visit the Addgene blog. If you use Addgene to read the latest updates on plasmid tools or molecular biology methods, check out our new educational resources webpage where you can find links to our blog, eBooks, protocols, guides, and more.

Hopefully you’ve had the chance to test out these new features for yourself. We’re always happy to get your feedback so we know how to best improve your experience with Addgene in the upcoming year and beyond. Reach us at We’d love to hear from you.

Along with Blugene’s make-over, Blugene has a new virus friend. We’d love to give you a voice in deciding the name for Blugene’s virus friend. If your name is selected as a finalist, you could be one of the first to have some newly updated Addgene swag.
