Genome sequencing provider Illumina opens i3 campus in San Diego

Illumina, a San Diego-based genome sequencing provider, signed a long-term lease for a 316,000-square-foot complex less than one mile from its headquarters, The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.

Illumina is the highest-valued biotech company in San Diego, according to the report. The company is credited with driving down the cost of DNA sequencing to less than $1,000 with its HiSeq X Ten Sequencing System, for which it made headlines in 2014.

The company's seven-acre complex is called the i3 campus — which stands for "iconic," "innovative" and "inspired," according to the report. Illumina has nearly 7,000 employees, 3,000 of whom work in San Diego.
