Actively prepared to participate in the Human Genome Project and closely followed and tracked scientific research in global human genomics.
With the advancement of sequencing technology, BGI's BT + IT scaled output model took shape. On September 9, 1999, BGI was established.
The combination of big science and big data transformed into a large industry. In 2007, BGI went south to Shenzhen and completed a series of major scientific research projects, gradually moving from being a participant to being a leader.
In an unprecedented era of genetic industrialization, the development path of BGI moved from "scientific and technological cooperation" and "technical services" to "medical services", with a vision of using "genetics technology for the benefit of man
BGI published the research of 1520 reference genomes from cultivated human gut bacteria on Nature.
