The companies will pair sequencing with genotype-phenotype matching and analytics in pursuit of wider access to precision medicine and faster, more accurate diagnoses.

The BGI Group subsidiary said it plans to strengthen its R&D and instrument production, targeting a global sequencing market it expects to grow to $12.45 billion in 2022.

Using genome sequence data for 429 accessions, an international team tracked chickpea's origin and spread, while identifying markers for important traits.

In Genome Research this week: metagenomic sequencing assay that detects pathogens in cerebrospinal fluid, single-tube long fragment read approach, and more.

In Genome Biology this week: genomic sequencing of milkweed bug, benchmark comparison of single-cell RNA sequencing platforms, and more.

A Chinese study involving NIPS data from almost two million pregnant women found that a new bioinformatic approach improves the detection of cancer.

Both teams had sequencing data generated at BGI and said that going forward, it would be important to validate the technology outside of BGI.

Startup AiLife Diagnostics is contributing its NGS analysis, interpretation, and reporting pipelines to BGI's $600 DNBseq WGS assay.

The suit alleges that BGI's sequencing products and reagents infringe a European patent held by Illumina.
