Date:4/17/2013

LA JOLLA, Calif., April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The J. Craig Venter Institute (JCVI) today announced that J. Robert Beyster and Betty J. Beyster will donate approximately $2.5 million to the Institute. The money will be used to support the completion of the new J. Craig Venter Institute sustainable laboratory currently under construction on the University of California, San Diego campus in La Jolla, CA. In recognition of this generous gift, the third floor ocean view conference room and terrace will be named the "Bob and Betty Beyster Conference Room" and the "Bob and Betty Beyster Terrace."

"We are very grateful to Bob and Betty for this very generous gift to JCVI," said J. Craig Venter , Ph.D., JCVI Founder and CEO. "Their visionary support of our new sustainable building will enable our scientists to continue their groundbreaking research on a variety of genomic fronts."

The Beyster Family has been a supporter of science programs at the JCVI since 2009 when they, along with matching funds from Life Technologies Foundation, sponsored a two year leg of the Sorcerer II Global Ocean Sampling Expedition. This substantial support from the Beyster family enabled sampling research of microbial life in the waters of the Baltic, Mediterranean, and Black Seas. These are scientifically important because they are among the world's largest seas isolated from the major oceans. To date more than 80 million new genes and protein families have been discovered as part of the Sorcerer II Expedition.

The Beyster's have also supported JCVI scientist Andy Allen , Ph.D. and his Southern California Upwelling Sampling Project. Dr. Al
