The Beijing Genome Institute (BGI) announced yesterday on their twitter feed that they are to launch a new genome sequencer at the end of 2015.
Speaking about this revolutionary new instrument, a BGI spokesperson told The Allium that they hoped that this would revolutionize genomic science.
“It is very simple to set up and can be managed by as few as one-thousand operatives”, said the spokesperson.
“Though naturally, for a more robust and comfortable process, you should really employ 17,000 to manage it properly”.
“We plan on launching this new instrument in the second week of October, and then we hope to have sequenced every organism on the planet by the third week in October”, said the spokesperson.
“In November we hope to launch our bioinformatics solution – the BGI 4,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,001
