Ocean Genome Legacy at Northeastern University

Ocean Genome Legacy (OGL) is a non­profit envi­ron­mental research orga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to pro­moting new methods for the study and con­ser­va­tion of marine species through DNA preser­va­tion and analysis.

At its new home at North­eastern, OGL will be a resource to uncover some of our ocean’s deepest mys­teries and reveal genomic infor­ma­tion that can help cure dis­eases, pro­tect the envi­ron­ment, and improve the sus­tain­ability of global food and energy supplies.

It will also facil­i­tate col­lab­o­ra­tions between sci­en­tists at the Marine Sci­ence Center and inves­ti­ga­tors around the world, offering the oppor­tu­nity to greatly expand the range of genomics evo­lu­tion inves­ti­ga­tions pos­sible for marine species.
