Chinese Leader in Genomics Joins Science Center's Port Community
Date:9/11/2013

Philadelphia, Pa. (PRWEB) September 11, 2013

BGI Health Americas, a U.S. subsidiary of BGI, one of the world’s leading research and genomics institutions, has opened an office at the University City Science Center’s Port business incubator.

Founded in Beijing in 1999 as Beijing Genomics Institute, BGI uses advanced technology platforms to study genetic structure, gene function and the contribution of genetics to health and disease. BGI has been a significant contributor to a number of international collaborations, including the Human Genome Project, the HapMap project for human genetic diversity, sequencing projects for species important to conservation and agriculture and projects for globally-significant diseases such as SARS.

BGI Health Americas was incorporated as the official interface for BGI Health in North, Central, and South Americas. In partnership with the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, BGI Health Americas will offer next generation sequencing in a CAP/CLIA certified facility to address problems in clinical diagnostics and personalized healthcare via its joint genome sequencing facility: BGI@CHOP. The goal of BGI Health Americas is to be the premier clinical sequencing solution provider.

Four other new startups joining BGI at the Port are educational online tool developer Choosito!; biotech companies AUM LifeTech and CytoVas; and a Belgian clinical trial company, S-Clinica. BGI and S-Clinica are participants in the Port’s Global Soft Landing program, which supports international companies establishing a foothold in U.S. markets.

“This diverse group of companies reflects the compostion of the Port incubator,” said Science Center Vice President Science & Technology Christopher J. Laing, MRCVS, Ph.D., who oversees the Port. “In addition to office and lab space, these startups will have access to expertise, programming and a strong network of service providers and resources.” '/>"/>
