Addgene Newsletter, July 2021


Hi there,

While it’s summer movie season at the theater (ahem, couch?), Addgene’s been preparing a “movie season” of our own with our favorite science super heroes: Addgene mascots Blugene and Aavery. In this newsletter, you’ll get the scoop on the latest video content from Addgene - all of which make your life easier as a new lab member, instructor, PI, or Addgene depositor. So grab your popcorn and an ice cold drink, and start watching some videos from Addgene! 

Here’s the breakdown of what you’ll find below:

  • New protocol videos created in collaboration with SnapGene
  • Intro to the Lab Bench protocol series
  • Depositor badges - a quick and easy way to let people know about your deposited plasmids
  • Updates on the latest plasmids and viral vector tools at Addgene
  • GIFs!

Watch video protocols created in collaboration with SnapGene

Over the past months, we’ve worked with SnapGene to bring you two protocol videos that demonstrate how you can visualize our annealed oligo cloning and plasmid sequencing analysis protocols in SnapGene.

See the video tutorials on SnapGene’s YouTube page!


Sign up to receive updates on our new Intro to the Lab Bench protocol series

The soon-to-be-launched Intro to the Lab Bench protocol series features written protocols, videos, and quizzes to help new scientists get acquainted with the lab. It’ll be a great tool for training new lab members, teaching new courses, or for self-study if you’re new to the lab or need a refresher. 

While we work behind the scenes to get the series officially launched, take a sneak peak at one of the videos we’re including:
