Atlantic Council: Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) (is) a Chinese artificial intelligence (AI) company referred to as the “Huawei of genomics.”

Gen News: (Feb 26, 2020) The coveted last slot of this year’s AGBT conference*, the premier genomics conference held in Florida every winter, promised to be a blockbuster with the title:

First $100 genome sequencing enabled by new extreme throughput DNBSEQ platform.

Technology Review: (pay site): (T)he Chinese gene giant BGI Group (announced) it will make genome sequencing cheaper than ever breaking the $100 barrier for the first time ever.

(Woo-hoo! More genomic gold for the People’s Republic of Totalitarianism.)

Radoje Drmanac, CSO of MGI (owned by BGI): It’s not unthinkable that a $10 genome may be (possible). At future AGBTs, we’ll hopefully present even crazier innovations and breakthroughs.

CBS: The financial stakes for dominating the global biotech sector — the industry that's bringing us the COVID vaccine — are staggering, estimated to be worth up to $4 trillion a year. For perspective, that's more than the valuation of Amazon and Apple combined.
