Until now, there are over 30 plant genomes have been published in the world. In 2011, BGI plans
to coordinate the sequencing of ~150 plant genomes using the next-generation sequencing technology.
We propose ~200 representative plant species that BGI looks for
collaborators all over the world. Scientists are welcome to propose other interested species.
The representative plant species distribute in a wide range of application areas, including grain,
vegetable, fruit, flower, tree, medicinal plant, marine plant, forage, oil plant 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.
