J. Craig Venter Institute Breaks Ground on La Jolla, California's First True Sustainable Laboratory Facility
Date:9/20/2011

r power).
  • Use of natural day lighting and views, natural ventilation/passive cooling, rainwater harvesting, native low-water landscaping, use of regional materials, green roofs, recycled content, sustainably harvested wood.
  • Rainfall runoff from the building rooftop will be stored in cisterns to provide water for irrigation, cooling towers, and washing photovoltaic panels.
  • Roof gardens featuring flowering trees, shrubs, grasses and succulents will be installed on the three terraces to help shade and cool the building.

  • Researchers in the facility will be engaged in some of the most exciting areas of genomic research including: human genomic sequencing and analysis, synthetic genomics, and environmental genomics. Specific programs currently underway (both by JCVI researchers alone and in collaboration with UCSD, SIO, Salk, and other area researchers/research organizations) are: environmental metagenomics research to find, catalogue and better understand the microbes in the oceans, soil, and the human body; research applying synthetic biology advances to microbes to help solve environmental and human health problems; improving techniques developed at JCVI to sequence the genomes of individual cells;  human genomics research building on the historic sequencing of Dr. Venter's complete diploid genome, stem cell genomics, as well as continued work on the African genome project.

    The JCVI currently has two facilities--a temporary facility near the UCSD campus with 60 researchers and the east coast headquarters in Rockville, MD with approximately 240 scientists and staff.

    McCarthy Building Companies is the general contractor.  Other companies involved in the design and construction of the JCVI building are:, Integral Group / IDeAs, KPFF Consulting Engineers, Jacobs Consultancy, Andropogon Associates with David Reed, Landscape Architects, David Nelson & Associates, SC Engineers, Inc., and Sustainable SoCa
