Is there something you always wanted to know about Ozgene? Chances are that the answer can now be found on our new website at We are pleased to announce the launch of the website, packed with new features and information.

New features include a complete Ozgene history, Frank’s blog, information on the Ozgene team and patents, as well as a newsletter page and archive. We also provide more detailed information on our services, with specific publication lists on our knockout, knockin and transgenic mouse models.

We are particularly excited about our publications page, which contains an interactive map that displays published Ozgene mouse models around the world. Since an Ozgene mouse is currently published every 12 days, we are expecting many more dots on the map.

So go ahead, check it out! You will be sure to enjoy some new cartoon Ozgene mice along with an overall clean, fresh look and easy navigation. We would love to hear what you think and look forward to your feedback through the contact us page.
