Beijing Genomics Institute adds AB SOLiD system to its next generation sequencing technologies
Date:4/18/2008

The Beijing Genomics Institute announced today that BGI has added Applied Biosystems SOLiD System to BGI's rapidly expanding next-generation sequencing technologies.

Two AB SOLiD Systems have been installed and were thoroughly tested by the BGI researchers. The AB SOLiD System generated high-throughput high quality mate-pair data with read lengths up to 25 bp. The highest throughput reached so far is 6.8 Gb mappable data per run with the expectation of further improvement in the upcoming months. The addition of these SOLiD systems to previously established and recently purchased sequencing systems places BGI among the top sequence-producing institutes worldwide.

The new next-generation sequencing platforms will be used to undertake the constantly increasing number of large-scale sequencing projects at BGI, including the Giant Panda Genome Project and the International 1000 Genomes Project. It also makes possible the expansion of the already extensive sequencing services that BGI provides to the community.
