Until now, there are over 60 animal genomes have been published in the world. In 2011,
BGI plans to coordinate the sequencing of ~150 animal genomes using the next-generation
sequencing technology. We propose ~100 representative animal species that BGI looks for collaborators all over the world. Scientists are welcome to
propose other interested species. The representative animal species distribute in a wide
range of application areas, including aquiculture, livestock, pet, pest, economic,
conservation etc. All the finished and in process genome projects
are supported by researchers all over the world. We are looking forward to collaborate
with you on the proposed genome projects.
