Have you ever searched on YouTube for a biology concept that you didn’t fully understand, only to come across basic whiteboard tutorials or grainy homemade videos with people who can’t clearly explain the concepts? Given Cyagen’s position as a leading provider of custom genetically modified mouse and rat models worldwide, we felt drawn to answer the call for quality explainer videos related to the field of gene engineering.


Announcing the Cyagen YouTube Channel

Over the next two years, Cyagen hopes to build a comprehensive selection high-quality, informative video content that exists in the field of genetic engineering. Our experts have already begun putting together content that addresses essential topics in developing genetically modified animal models, educational webinars, and more – all of which will be featured on our newly launched Cyagen YouTube Channel!


Explaining Genetic Engineering with Animation & Video

Our motto, “We help you discover life,” continues serving as a guiding principle in our decision to launch a YouTube channel. We aim to create educational content that explains a wide range of topics in gene editing and animal model generation alongside clear visual aids.  Cyagen’s educational YouTube content will mostly revolve around complex biological concepts relating to genetically modified animals, including webinars from our leading scientists, but may also touch on stem cells. Initially, we plan to cover introductory topics in genetic engineering that aims to teach complex topics in a way that is accessible to a wide audience – from young scientists to experienced researchers.

Additionally, we plan to develop video content to help prospective customers understand key capabilities of our custom animal model services and stem cell products. Over the next year, we will not only build a library of educational genetics content, but also produce video content that explains the technical advantages and relative limitations of various model generation methods. For prospective customers, we will generate content that presents our service capabilities in a quick and efficient manner.  The Cyagen YouTube channel will be a complementary platform we use to announce new products and services as well as explain how its older products work using animated visual aids.


Going Beyond – Serving Researchers Worldwide

Our channel will provide more than just educational videos – providing direct insights into the work that we do. We plan to include tours of our facilities, interviews with customers, and more. As we strive to speak to our diverse research audience, we want to hear from you! Contact us or comment directly on our YouTube Discussion board to provide your feedback and suggestions for topics. Your input could directly impact the direction of the channel, and topic suggestions and questions may be answered by our scientists. To achieve our goal of 1000 subscribers by 2022, let us know what you want to see from us.
