Founded in 2003, Beijing Institute of Genomics (BIG), Chinese Academy of Science has been continuously promoting the international research cooperation and overseas scientific exchange with experts in Genomics, Epigenomics, and Bioinformatics. Thus, several major research projects have been accomplished with remarkable success.


Thirteen years has seen the important breakthroughs in the establishment of new technologies and new methods for huge amount of data acquisition and analysis and also the fundamental theory and practice in cancer genome evolution as well as the initiatory investigation in epigenomics of transcriptome.


Since then, BIG has established a network of international collaborations with many countries, such as USA, UK, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Korea, Saudi Arabia, etc. Some academic conferences on different fields of genomics have been held in BIG each year, among of which the International Conference of Genomics and the Genomics Frontiers Symposium are relatively famous. These are the two traditional grand meetings further promoting both the communication and collaboration with the scientists all over the world. Besides the above academic activities, Scientists of the institute are also encouraged and recommended for the positions in international academic organizations to improve the international academic level of our institute.
