The JGI ceased onsite staffing and laboratory operations in mid-March, when the Bay Area Counties issued a shelter in place order in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. As our number one priority is the health and safety of our staff and community, the Department of Energy, Berkeley Lab, the Biosciences Area and JGI continue to refine and evaluate a phased approach to return to the worksite at the Integrative Genomics Building (IGB) starting in June.
As these plans are approved, we will provide additional information about the timing for accepting user sample shipments. If you are a current JGI user and have specific questions about your project, please contact your Project Manager.
