BGI Tech Launches Human Whole Exome Sequencing Service on Complete Genomics' Advanced Platform
Date:7/22/2014

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. and SHENZHEN, China, July 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --  BGI Tech Solutions Co., LTD, (BGI Tech), a subsidiary of BGI, the world's largest genomics organization, announced today the global launch of a new human whole exome sequencing service based on Complete Genomics' industry-leading platform. This newly offered service includes in-depth bioinformatics analysis and SNP validation, and is available at reduced prices until December 31, 2014.

Complete Genomics, highly regarded in the industry for providing proprietary sequencing technologies with 99.999% accuracy and highly sensitive detection of all types of variants, was acquired by BGI in 2013. More than 15,000 human genomes have been sequenced and analyzed on the Complete Genomics platform to date. BGI, applying its deep genome and exome sequencing expertise, has enriched Complete Genomics' platform further to now enable robust and rapid human whole exome sequencing services that leverage the inherent strengths of that platform.

Whole exome sequencing on Complete Genomics platform, available beginning today at only $599 per sample, guarantees 100X average sequencing depth for target regions. The offer includes analysis for SNP/InDel calling and annotation as well as SNP validation, further assuring the accuracy of results and saving customers time and effort for additional validations. In addition, BGI Tech also provides a dedicated workflow and pipeline addressing cancer study design and challenges, enabling sensitive detection of somatic variants in the presence of tumor heterogeneity.

"With the launch of whole exome sequencing on Complete Genomics platform, BGI Tech is addressing the market need for superior sequencing solutions at affordable pricing," stated Yingrui Li, CEO of BGI Tech, "We are pleased to make this robust and extremely accurate platform available to our more than 30,000 customers worldwide and to the broader research community globally. We are currently developing additional applications of this platform, such as transcriptome analysis and genotyping by sequencing, and look forward to announcing their availability soon."

Complete Genomics' platform provides the highest level of accuracy through its proprietary sequencing technology, DNA Nanoball Arrays (DNBTM) and Combinatorial Probe-Anchor Ligation (cPAL™), that address subtle nuances of the human genome. A proprietary local de novo read mapping and assembly algorithm further increases its accuracy in variant calling and enables sensitive detection of allele heterozygosity.
