Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository

The Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository (VCMR) contains a unique collection of genetically-modified mice that available for rederivation.  All lines have been either generated or modified by Vanderbilt investigators, and are not available in any other repository.

Investigators interested in donating a strain to the VCMR should complete the VCMR strain information and release form and return it to vcmr@vanderbilt.edu.

The following factors are considered prior to accepting strains into the VCMR. 

  • Is the strain of potential value to other researchers?
  • If the strain is available elsewhere, has it been modified by changing the genetic background to through intercrossing with other alleles?
  • Has the strain been published? 
  • If the strain is unpublished, is there sufficient documentation and evidence that it functions as desired?

Benefits of the Vanderbilt Cryopreserved Mouse Repository:

  • Facilitates compliance with NIH sharing policy
  • Serves as an online resource of cryopreserved germplasm at Vanderbilt
  • May avoid importing mice from an outside repository

We apologize, but the VCMR is currently offline.
