The Pennacchio Laboratory is split between the DOE JGI (in Walnut Creek) and the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). Both groups are heavily involved in understanding DNA sequence function using a variety of experimental and computational approaches.
At the JGI, the Genomic Technologies Department is comprised of ~100 employees focused on Production Sequencing, Research and Development, DNA Synthesis, Single Cell Genomics and Genome Analysis. Specific research interests include assessing new technologies and molecular approaches to facilitate DOE JGI user science.
At LBNL, research is focused on understanding the functions of the human genome and in particular how genes are regulated across time and space. This is a traditional academic group funded through grant support largely from the National Institutes of Health. Postdoctoral positions are available at both locations.
