Co-published with BGI

BGI was founded in Beijing in 1999 with the mission of supporting scientific and technological development, building strong research teams, and promoting international partnerships. Now the world’s largest genomics organization, in 2007, BGI relocated to Shenzhen as the first citizen-managed, non-profit research institution in China. To further its goals of making scientific information broadly accessible, BGI, in collaboration with BioMed Central, is now contributing to scientific communication by publishing the open access international research journal GigaScience and hosting its integrated database GigaDB.
