BGI to Play Pivotal Sampling, Next-Generation Sequencing and Bioinformatics Role in Earth Microbiome Project
Date:3/22/2011

e EMP proposes to leverage this capability at a scale many orders of magnitude greater than any previously conceived study in order to sequence microbes and microbial communities from every conceivable biome. The resulting Gene Atlas will describe protein space, environmental metabolic models for each biome, approximately 500,000 reconstructed microbial genomes, a global metabolic model, and a data-analysis portal for visualization of all information. Key participants in this unprecedented project include BGI, Argonne National Laboratory and University of Chicago, University of Colorado-Boulder, Lawrence Berkley National Laboratory and the US Department of Energy Joint Genome Institute.
