From January through June of 2020, Cyagen received over 70 citations for our animal models, contributing to many advances across research fields. We have put together the below list of articles from high impact factor (IF) journals to provide insights into a variety of mouse model types, gene targets, research applications, and some of the most recent developments shown in scientific literature.

The following publications demonstrate the use of genetically modified mouse models across a range of human disease research, including atherosclerosis, inflammatory disorders, cardiovascular disease, oncology, metabolism, and virology. All citations listed feature gene targets included among our ready-to-use Cyagen Knockout Catalog Models – deliverable in as fast as 3 months!
