Leveraging the world largest sequencing platform and superb bioinformatics analysis ability of BGI, BGI Japan offers a superb stage for research institutes and scientists to collaborate and communicate on academic&scientific projects. So far, BGI Japan has already established partnerships with a number of well-known universities, large research institutes and researchers in Japan. Two symposiums on cancer research have been held so far. The China-Japan Symposium on Cancer Research meeting has been successfully held at Shenzhen for the first time in 2011, the “2nd Japan-China Symposium on Cancer Research”, has been successfully held at Chiba, Japan during May 9th~11th, 2012. It provided an opportunity for cancer researchers in China and Japan to familiarize with each other’s contribution to scientific research as well as to facilitate international collaboration in cancer study between the two countries.

In order to ensure a better service for Japanese clients, BGI has built a team consisted of Japanese talents and Chinese overseas on document refinement and local Japanese staff for the localization of BGI services. Based on the BGI Japan Kobe office, we have set up a high-efficient logistics service system to make sure samples from the clients could be delivered to BGI Hongkong Sample Center timely.

BGI Japan will continuously promote the development of genomics research, biology industry and healthcare research between China and Japan. 


At the end of 2010BGI Japan was founded.

On May, 2011, the China-Japan Symposium on Cancer Research meeting was jointly organized by BGI, Chiba Cancer Center and The Beijing Institute for Cancer Research. It has been successfully held at Shenzhen for the first time which aimed to promote academic exchanges between Chinese and Japanese scientists who focus their researches on cancer, which had always been a heated field in biological study.

On May 9th-11th 2012 , the 2nd Japan-China Symposium on Cancer Research was held at Chiba, Japan, which is jointly organized by Chiba Cancer Center, Tokyo Medical and Dental University, facilitated international collaboration in cancer study between the two countries.

In July, 2012, the first realname personal data was open to public, the technology that the researchers used at this project was the BGI whole genome sequencing.

In september,2012five seminars were jointly held by BGI Japan, The University of Tokyo, Kyoto University, Keio University and : National Institute of Agrobiological Sciences to introduce the advanced technologies and research progress of BGI.


BGI Japan, leveraging BGI’s world largest sequencing platform and strong bioinformatics analysis ability, provides next generation sequencing services which include the Hi-seq and bioinformatics analysis across genomics, transcriptomics and epigenetics for research institutes, medical institutes, researchers and so on to help with the clients’ scientific research. BGI Japan also provides test for reproductive health, blood diseases, genetic diseases, pathogenic microorganisms detection etc, and give guidance for Japanese people on health at genomic aspect.
