Accelerating the Pace of Discovery with Your Support

Advancing Genomic Research

The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) has a long history of pioneering genomic research and successful grant funding for this research. However, the biggest scientific breakthroughs developed at JCVI — including sequencing the first genome of a free-living organism, sequencing the first microbiome, and constructing the first synthetic cell — were funded with philanthropic support. We have a variety of ways you can become a partner in advancing genomics for a better future, including our Genomic Frontier Fund. You can also direct your support to one of our innovative research programs, our sustainable laboratory or a distinguished scientist. Please join us in fueling the most exciting scientific research today.
