Rare collection that may hold key to ocean's biggest mysteries looks to expand in new waterfront home
Date:7/16/2013

BOSTON, July 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Ocean Genome Legacy (OGL), New England Biolabs, Inc., and Northeastern University have reached an agreement that will bring a collection of DNA and tissue from the world's most rare, strange, and remarkable ocean creatures to the Marine Science Center in Nahant, Massachusetts.

OCEAN GENOME LEGACY
Founded in 2001 by Dr. Donald Comb, also founder and former CEO of New England Biolabs, OGL is a non-profit environmental research organization and DNA bank dedicated to promoting new methods for the study and conservation of marine species through preservation and analysis of their DNA. 

As part of its mission, OGL created the Ocean Genome Resource Collection—a publicly accessible genome biorepository that contains samples of DNA from species—in many cases, rare species—who call the ocean home. This priceless collection, which will move to Northeastern University's Marine Science Center later this year, is and will continue to be used to uncover some of our ocean's deepest mysteries, and to reveal genomic information that can help cure diseases, improve sustainability of global food and energy supplies, and protect the environment.

MOVING TO NORTHEASTERN
Thanks to the generosity of New England Biolabs and other private donors, and a commitment toward creating a matching endowment, operations of OGL at Northeastern's Marine Science Center will continue and likely expand as the organization moves to its new home.  A new lab to house the OGL collection will also be built in the coming years as the collection grows.
