Alameda Sun: City Hopes to Bring Lab to the Point, January 20, 2011


At last Tuesday's meeting the city council discussed the possibility of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory coming to the Island City.

The lab is looking for a spot to build a new campus to consolidate programs currently located in leased space throughout the East Bay.

These include the Joint BioEnergy Institute in Emeryville, the Joint Genome Institute (JGI) in Walnut Creek, the National Energy Research Scientific Computing Center in Oakland and part of the Life Sciences Division in West Berkeley.
