  • new BGI sequencer can sequence 1mil genomes/year

    BGI will release two sequencers this year. One big one small. The big one can sequence 1 million genomes per year. No details on the small one. Exact spec will be announced in Q2:



    Well, HiSeq X Ten can only do 2400 genomes per machine per year. Assuming this big sequencer is also selling in ten packs, then its throughput is 40x of HiSeq X. Too good to be true???

    In fact, "BGI sequencer" are developed by Complete Genomics........

      It is always good to have additional options .. specially if the pricing is reasonable.

      That said providing field support (applications/software) for new instruments is not trivial but perhaps BGI has the money do that as well.

        Not too many words I understood .. couldn't find the "switch to english language" button ;-)

          You can translate to German also :-)

            ha, good hint .. never used it to translate a whole website. :-)

              ah.. I think I understand now. BGI used to quote one genome as 1x genome not 30x genome. So they are in fact claiming they can make a machine at a throughput similar to HiSeq X.

              How's the error rate of Complete Genomics? How does it compare to Illumina machines?

                1,000,000 genomes per year? Kind of like the claim BGI had a few years ago about having 1000 bioinformaticians. Maybe someone got their powers of 10 off a couple of places.

                  The linked text is just a translation of the Genomeweb article I would guess. In there they discuss BGI:s "Million genomes" project, not 1 million genomes per year.

                  If I remember correctly, CG now uses an ordered flow cell with 6 billion clusters, one cluster per pixel. Aiming for cameras capable of 500 MP/s (?), not sure what that would translate to in terms of genomes / year. 100 bp reads with long fragment technology and higher quality than Illumina.

                    BGI will launch at least two new sequencers this year. We will start some early-access projects to benchmark the new sequencers soon.

                      Exploring the Dynamics of the Tumor Microenvironment
                      by seqadmin




                      The complexity of cancer is clearly demonstrated in the diverse ecosystem of the tumor microenvironment (TME). The TME is made up of numerous cell types and its development begins with the changes that happen during oncogenesis. “Genomic mutations, copy number changes, epigenetic alterations, and alternative gene expression occur to varying degrees within the affected tumor cells,” explained Andrea O’Hara, Ph.D., Strategic Technical Specialist at Azenta. “As...

                      Exploring Human Diversity Through Large-Scale Omics
                      by seqadmin


                      In 2003, researchers from the Human Genome Project (HGP) announced the most comprehensive genome to date1. Although the genome wasn’t fully completed until nearly 20 years later2, numerous large-scale projects, such as the International HapMap Project and 1000 Genomes Project, continued the HGP's work, capturing extensive variation and genomic diversity within humans. Recently, newer initiatives have significantly increased in scale and expanded beyond genomics, offering a more detailed...
