BGI－North China covers Province of Hebei, Shanxi, Liaoning, Jilin, and regions like Beijing, Tianjin, Inner Mongolia, South Korea.
.BGI-North has established in-depth cooperation with many institute and companies on genome sequencing technical service, clinical diagnosis, judicature evidence identity and so on. BGI-North also provides the clinical research reagents and clinical diagnostic reagents. It has been the main force of BGI in China.
Being the origin of BGI, BGI Beijing was founded on September 9, 1999 in Beijing Airport Industrial Zone, subjected to the Human Genome Project at that time. From 1999 to 2007, BGI-Beijing continued to grow and develop, made a tremendous number of accomplishments, such as International HapMap Project, rice genome project, silkworm genome project, chicken genome project, anti-SARS research and other great projects with high quality, which achieved glory for the country. BGI Beijing has successed in developing its own complete training system and reasonable performance evaluation mechanism, built up a strong team with hundreds of staff members. Beijing BGI-GBI Biotech Co,Ltd and BGI protein research center Co,Ltd have acquired the designation of High and New Technology Enterprises. As the BGI Unicare Technology Co.,Ltd established, BGI North Region will divide itself into developing health and biotechnology with the advantage of its area policy and promoting the small small medium science innovative enterprise as its main force.

BGI Tianjin was set up in 2011 in Tianjin Airport Economic Zone
. It is mainly focused on genetic testing for hearing impairment, Non-Invasive prenatal genetic testing of fetal chromosomal aneuploidy, molecular detection of pathogenic, genetic testing for personalized cancer therapy, monogenic disease and SNP genotyping. 2012 is a milestone for BGI Tianjin. BGI transformation of medical application center and North National gene bank were both founded in Tianjin this year, which provided significant supports for corresponding research projects together. Furthermore, BGI Tianjin and National Center for Supercomputing in Tianjin had reached the strategic cooperation and commenced business smoothly.
