BGI-Central China, headquartered in Wuhan Biolake, was founded on April 28th, 2010. As the main industry base of BGI, BGI-Central China maintains the great responsibility of launching BGI advanced technology and genome research findings for medical care and agricultural breeding. BGI-Central China has unique geographical advantages, covering Hubei, Hunan, Henan, Anhui, Jiangxi, Chongqing, Sichuan, Xizang, Yunnan and Guizhou. As a high-tech industrial entity using cutting-edge technologies, BGI-Central China is determined to become the biggest genome research center and industry base in Midwest China.
At present, BGI-Central China has over 300 employees. Infrastructure construction, experiment platform construction and industrial construction are on track, and a large-scale sequencing platform is to be relocated from BGI-Shenzhen to BGI-Central China.
BGI-Central China has promoted genomic technology application in agricultural breeding, established a whole genome molecular breeding technology system for major food crops, economic crops, energy crops, livestock and aquatic species, collected excellent species resources and built up a genomic information database. Relying on BGI’s advanced sequencing technology, bioinformatics analysis technology and agricultural molecular breeding platform and by collaborating with universities, agricultural institutions, breeding enterprises and industry associations, BGI-Central China will enhance the selection of new variety in the central China region.
In the medical care industry, with BGI’s powerful global-leading biotechnology, BGI-Central China applies the latest genomic findings in medical treatment and public health. In order to provide a medical genetic testing service for the whole of the midwest region, BGI-Central China has established a professional medical laboratory, and collaborated with dozens of large-sized hospitals.
