About Us

Vanderbilt Genome Editing Resource (VGER), formerly known as the Transgenic Mouse/ES Cell Shared Resource, has been a trusted and invaluable resource specializing in generating unique mouse lines, cryopreservation, and rederivation for 30 years. Over the years, we have served 340 investigators by generating over 3,500 unique mouse strains. Since 2013, we have produced more than 150 genome-edited alleles using CRISPR/Cas9. In addition to genome editing services, we have also played a crucial role in cryopreserving mouse strains. To date, we have successfully cryopreserved more than 930 unique strains, ensuring the long-term safeguarding of these resources.  Notably, 52 of these preserved lines are now accessible through the Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository.

If you are interested in utilizing VGER’s services for your research project, we have many years of experience in generating novel transgenic mouse models and are happy to discuss your project with you.

Mission and Oversight

The Vanderbilt Genome Editing Resource (VGER) exists to support scientific discovery by enabling the production and sharing of genetically-altered research models. VGER operates under the oversight of the Vanderbilt Center for Stem Cell Biology, a faculty advisory committee, the Vanderbilt Ingram Cancer Center Shared Resource Oversight Group, and the Center for Basic Sciences.
