Genome Research Foundation

Announced: 4th September. 2012.


Billion Genome Project (BGP) is the genome project to sequence and analyze 7 billion people on Earth (i.e., every human being on Earth).


1. Technological advancement: sequencing technology that can do 7 billion people

2. Computing power to analyze 7 billion genomes in one session.

3. Storage space to store 7 billion genomes and their secondary analysis outputs.

4. Bioinformatics algorithms and systems to analyze them.

5. User interface to search and use 7 billion genome sequences and bioinformatic results.


Sub projects of 7 BGP:

Asian Genome Project (on going)

Korean Genome Project (on going)
