Established by BGI-Shenzhen, the China National GeneBank (CNGB) is the first national genebank integrating a large-scale bio-repository and an omics database. It is approved by Chinese government, with the mission of collecting, preserving and exploiting genomics resources, and to build a network fostering global communication and collaboration on biodiversity conservation and genetic resources utilization. In addition, CNGB is supported by BGI’s high-throughput sequencing and bio-informatics capacity, and it will not only provide a repository system for biological collection, but more importantly develop a novel platform to further understand genomic mechanisms of life.
