BGI and G10K Consortium Announce Plan to Sequence Genomes for 10,000 Vertebrates

In 2010, BGI and G10K leaders agreed to cooperate in the genome sequence of the initial 1% of the G10K goal. In the past five years, 100 vertebrate species’ genome analyses have been completed by BGI and G10K in Phase I of the Project. Altogether the number of vertebrate taxa sequenced to date worldwide is approaching 300 species. More than one third of these genomes are derived from the original BGI-G10K collaborative cooperation.
