New York Genome Center

A recent event in New York was held to announce a 20-year lease location for the New York Genome Center – 101 Avenue of the Americas, which is great news for the city’s somewhat lagging science and tech industry.  The idea is that the site will become North America’s largest genomic research center.  Construction has already begun at the LEED Silver-certified building that are to become home to seven floors of laboratories and offices to support genomic sequencing and analysis using: bioinformatics; data mining; Illumina technology and translational medicine.  It is opened that the labs will open in 2013 so if you happen to be visiting the area, on business or pleasure luxuriating in Shimmie Horn’s Iroquois Hotel or the Hilton New York, next year, it could be a great opportunity to see how much this new construction will have done to the caliber of the city of New York.
