The Genentech Center, a part of the CSHL Archives, focuses on documenting the basic scientific research that underpinned the development of molecular biology and biotechnology. This research, carried out initially in academic laboratories, led to the development of recombinant DNA techniques, which in turn stimulated entrepreneurial scientists to create biotechnology companies.
The mission of the Genentech Center is to identify, acquire, preserve, digitize, and promote the original correspondence, papers, and research material of the individuals and institutions that were crucial to the development of molecular biology and biotechnology worldwide.
The Center's collections contain personal correspondence, laboratory notebooks, photographs, reprints and videos.
