On October 25, 2018, at the 13th International Conference on Genomics (ICG-13) hosted by BGI, with the witness of the guests at home and abroad, the China National GeneBank DataBases (CNGBdb) officially released and became a highlight of ICG-13.
Recently, the CNGB Nucleotide Sequence Archive (CNSA) has undergone a major upgrade. The batch submission function of sequencing data that many users are eagerly awaiting is finally realized for the first time in China. From now on, CNSA can not only complete data submission several times faster than before, but also greatly improve the operating experience.
On October 25, 2017, China National GeneBank released CNGB Nucleotide Sequence Archive (CNSA). CNSA is a convenient and fast online submission system for biological research projects, samples, experiments and other information data. CNSA is committed to the storage and sharing of biological sequencing information and data, and is designed to provide global researchers with the most comprehensive data and information resources, enabling researchers to access and use data easily and deeply.
In September 2017, the China National GeneBank (CNGB) joined the Data Center Alliance as a member of the board of directors and fulfilled the responsibilities of associate members. Xun Xu, the executive director of CNGB and dean of BGI serves as the director of the Alliance, who will give priority to the work of the alliance infrastructure working group, IT equipment working group, internet security working group, international cooperation committee and so on, and gradually extend to other work.
