Local info

The event will be at the J. Craig Venter Institute’s (JCVI) campus in La Jolla (4120 Capricorn Lane, La Jolla, CA 92037). Registration for both workshops will be in the JCVI lobby and the event will be on the 3rd floor. We will meet mostly in the JCVI’s 100 person conference room. There will not be parking for workshop attendees at the JCVI. We recommend using ride sharing services. There is parking in the neighborhoods south of the JCVI, and it is about a 12 minute walk from areas where parking can be found (see the attached map). It takes about 20-30 minutes to travel from the San Diego Airport to the JCVI.
CELL-FREE Workshop will begin at 12:30 PM PST on Thursday February 7th and end around 5:30-6:00 PM. There will be no lunch, but there will be snacks and drinks.
The Build-A-Cell Workshop will begin with registration and breakfast at 8:30 AM PST and conclude at around 5:00 PM. Lunch, snacks, and drinks will be provided.

A block of rooms is available at the La Jolla Sheraton Hotel , which is the closest hotel to the JCVI. These rooms are $174 per night (government per diem rate for La Jolla) for February 6th, 7th and 8th.
This toll-free number is available now for workshop attendees to call: 1-800-325-3535 and ask for the Workshops group rate.
