Integrative Genomics Building
The Integrative Genomics Building (IGB) is an 80,880 gsf, four-story research and office building constructed in the former Bevatron area — a fully developed site in the geographic interior of the Berkeley Lab. The IGB accommodates two existing Department of Energy research programs that previously resided in off-site leased space: The Joint Genome Institute (JGI) in Walnut Creek and the Systems Biology Knowledgebase (KBase) in Emeryville.
Consolidating existing biosciences research in the IGB increases resource efficiencies and scientific synergies for the JGI and KBase programs. These programs include research initiatives in bioenergy, carbon cycle, biogeochemistry, and systems to promote computer modeling of gene and protein functions.
