The National Gene Vector Laboratories (NGVL) was a gene therapy manufacturing
and toxicology resource previously sponsored by the National Center for Research
Resources, NIH. The program was discontinued and replaced by the National Gene Vector Biorepository (NGVB).
While vector production and toxicology studies are no longer supported, the NCRR
created a new program to assist gene therapy investigators, the National Gene Vector
Biorepository (www.ngvbcc.org). The NGVB maintains a number of resources
previously associated with the NGVL, including the
NGVL Pharmacology/Toxicology Database
and SeqMap, a
bioinformatics tool for insertion site analysis. The NGVB
now offers a variety of archiving services, educational resources, and a reagent repository.
The NGVB Coordinating Center is located in the Department of Medical and Molecular
Genetics at the Indiana University School of Medicine, the same site as the previous
NGVL Coordinating Center. For more information, please visit the
