The Vanderbilt Genome Editing Resource (VGER) offers cryopreservation of mouse models using advanced techniques.  The generation and maintenance of genome-altered mouse models represent a major investment of both money and time.  Laboratories can save money and protect their mouse lines by performing cryopreservation of per or embryos.  Cryopreservation reduces colony management costs by reducing the number of cages and the personnel effort to maintain them.  Cryopreservation also protects your valuable lines against illness, disaster, genetic drift or accidental loss.  VGER can quickly and efficiently restore your cryopreserved lines by in vitro fertilization.  Cryopreservation also facilitates the distribution of mouse models to other investigators by eliminating the need to ship live animals.  Furthermore, donating lines to the Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository (VCMR), which will distribute you cryopreserved lines to qualified investigators for you, ensures compliance with NIH mouse Sharing Policies.  For more information about cryopreservation services offered by the VGER go to  For additional information about the VCMR got to
