Mitochondrial Metagenomics: How Genomics Technology Could Help Save UK Wild Bee Population

July 6, 2015, – A mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) database utilizing a new mitochondrial metagenomics pipeline developed by scientists from BGI’s China National Genebank (CNGB), demonstrates value in detecting and monitoring wild bee population in UK. The study published today in the journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution shows that, with mitogenome references, collecting wild bees, extracting their mixed DNA, and directly reading the DNA of the resultant ‘bee soup’ could finally make large-scale bee monitoring programmes feasible. This new research demonstrates how the process could become quicker, cheaper and more accurate.

BGI receives CAP accreditation

BGI announced today that its high-throughput DNA sequencing laboratory in Hong Kong has been accredited by the American College of Pathologists (CAP). The BGI Hong Kong facility is the first clinical next-generation-sequencing laboratory to receive the CAP certification in China, meeting the highest standard in clinical laboratory practices.
