    If it's true, it's the cheapest on the market...

    It's not available until June 1st...

    When they say "full genome sequencing", what exactly is included? (for the people who dont read mandarin)
    Can you give us some information?

    The sequencing of all your genome, just like what Illumina has been providing, but at a much lower price($999->$480). It will come with reports and raw data.

    They also offer full genome sequencing with Illumina at ¥9999(compared to ¥2999 with this new BGI machine), with additional 'shipping of special storage device and professional consulting services'.

    Is this just Y-DNA, or the whole works (i.e mtDNA, autosomal, Y-DNA)?

    The whole works.
    I don't know what it means but they say the depth is x30.

    For x30 WGS $480 is a good price.
    This company works just for China?

    I would not test with them, they are unresponsive when people try to get in contact with them, check Wegene FB forums etc..

    I don't know. 23andme works only for the US because of the customs, but I don't know if the Chinese customs have similar rules. It's very possible that they do not offer international shipping too. The whole thing looks like it's in a very raw state. Maybe they are not selling it until June because they are not completely ready.

    Interesting, the Chinese government probably wants to get more information on foreign citizens so they can clone us and use our clones as slaves.
