BGI said this week that it will re-sequence 1,008 soybean germplasm lines for the National Center for Soybean Biotechnology at the University of Missouri.

Under the agreement, BGI will provide library construction, five-fold whole-genome sequence coverage for each line, and all related bioinformatics analysis.

The project will begin with a 100-species pilot this year, and will potentially extend to between 5,000 and 10,000 lines.
