Joint Genome Institute

Contact:   Crystal Jaing
The Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is a high-throughput genome sequencing and analysis facility dedicated to the genomics of nonmedical microbes, microbial communities, plants, fungi and other targets relevant to DOE mission areas in clean energy generation, climate change, and environmental sciences. Scientists from the Applied Genomics group support key missions of JGI by performing DNA sequencing experiments and sequencing data analysis utilizing unique molecular biology skills and state-of-the-art instrumentation.

Animal Care Facility

Contact:   ACF support
The PHS Assured and Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animals, International (AAALAC) accredited Animal Facility houses several thousand small animals, which are cared for by three full time Laboratory Animal Technologists. Animal models have been used in comparative genomics studies, for studies that focus on understanding gene regulation, and for vaccine and countermeasure development.

Select Agent Center

Contact:   Bioagent support
The Select Agent Center has Biosafety Level-2, Biosafety Level -3 and Animal Biosafety Level -3 facilities and is registered with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the animal care facilities are PHS Assured and accredited by the AAALAC.

National Resource for Biomedical Accelerator Mass Spectrometry

Contact:   Ken Turteltaub
The National Resource for Biomedical Accelerator Mass Spectrometry has been established to make Accelerator Mass Spectrometry available to researchers who have a need for accurately measuring very low levels of radioisotopes in their research. The Resource is working to enhance AMS for analysis of radioisotopes in biomedical tracer studies through development of new methods and instrumentation.
