Genome Sciences Building

This building was a major component of a campus-wide effort initiated in 2004 to expand research facilities at UNC—Chapel Hill. Completed in 2012, the building houses the Carolina Center for Genome Sciences, which brings together faculty from across campus working on genomics research. It contains auditoriums, classrooms, and laboratories. Built to be more environmentally friendly than older campus buildings, it includes several innovative features, including rooftop greenhouses used by researchers working on plant genomics.
