BGI

In a paper appearing online today in Science, a BGI-led team re-sequenced 40 wild and domestic silkworm genomes, finding new clues about silkworm evolution and domestication.

The multi-partner project will seek to sequence and analyze many microbial genomes.

A group of Chinese researchers will sequence one orchid species, and draft the transcriptomes of others.

BGI has used the algorithm, called SOAPdenovo, to assemble the panda genome, which it is sequencing with the Illumina Genome Analyzer.

The highest auction bidder will receive a copy of his or her genome sequence, along with a comprehensive interpretation. Two years of analysis update services are also included.

BGI-Shenzhen will sequence the genomes of three extreme cold animals, learning their tricks and studying population diversity.

The two institutes' scale-up is another indication that the Illumina platform is becoming the dominant type of second-generation sequencer at some of the largest genome centers in the world, all of them early adopters of next-generation sequencing technology.

The institute will add 12 new Genome Analyzers to its Hong Kong and Shenzhen labs.
