Joint Genome Institute

The Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) was created in 1997 to unite the expertise and resources in genome mapping, DNA sequencing, technology development, and information sciences pioneered at the DOE genome centers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL), Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), and Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL). The mission of the JGI is to advance new sequencing and other high-throughput, genome-scale and computational technologies as a means for discovering and characterizing the basic principles and relationships underlying the organization, function, and evolution of living systems. A primary goal of the JGI is to make high-quality genome sequencing data freely available to the greater scientific community through its web portal.
