One of the major players in this quickly evolving Chinese scientific scene is the company BGI. BGI is known for multiple different reasons. Perhaps the most interesting are the company's insights into cloning. BGI specializes in producing hundreds of clones of animals such as pigs, making it one of the largest livestock cloning companies in the world . However, what makes it even more interesting is that the company not only owns an American company that makes gene sequencing machines but that it also uses these capabilities in rural China to change the way that people live. In a converted shoe factory in Shenzen, China is able to take 3,000 mostly college graduates and create solutions to genomic problems ranging from orchids to animals while simultaneously training individuals who had no previous knowledge in genomics and whose average age is only 26 . This revolution in Chinese science is not simply taking place as many expect with laboratory scientific practices such as mice but as in BGI’s case in a laboratory stacked with hard drives and large sequencing arrays with DNA that arrives from every part of the world . With both technological and economic changes on the horizons BGI specifically and the new wave of Chinese scientific interest in general appears to be poised to have their time in the sun.
