Vanderbilt Genome Editing Resource (VGER)
The Vanderbilt Genome Editing Resource (VGER) is located in Medical Research Building IV, and has procedure rooms in both the Medical Center North and Preston Research Building vivariums.  VGER is equipped with microscopes, embryo microinjection systems, incubators, liquid nitrogen storage tanks, a controlled slow rate freezer, and complete molecular biology and cell culture laboratories.  It provides a wide range of services that enable the generation of gene-altered mice and human-induced pluripotent cell lines.  This includes support in the design and execution of CRISPR-mediated gene editing, embryo microinjections, and founder animal screening and breeding. It also provides state-of-the-art cryopreservation, cryostorage, and rederivation services, and maintains the Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository (VCMR).
