The Genomics Platform resides in a 100,000 square foot facility located at 320 Charles St., Cambridge, MA. The building has served multiple purposes throughout its long history, including as a Budweiser Beer distribution center, and a storage facility for concessions served across the river at Fenway Park.
Today, the building is outfitted with the infrastructure required to transform hundreds of thousands of samples from primary sample material to data capable of discovering and identifying genomic underpinnings of human disease.
We have continually invested in the infrastructure of the facility to allow it to adapt to the changing needs of novel technologies.
