Built in part with support from CBSE and QB3, it provides 96,000 square feet of teaching, research, and office space and an interactive learning center. It also provides office and laboratory space for faculty in biomolecular engineering, computer science, computer engineering, electrical engineering, and for visiting bioinformatics researchers.

This building, designed by Los Angeles architects Anshen + Allen, received a merit award for design from the American Institute of Architects, Los Angeles Chapter in November 2004. The award jury praised the use of different materials to emphasize the building's different functions.
