About Us

Complete Genomics is a leader in accurate whole human genomic sequencing based in Mountain View, California. Using our proprietary sequencing instruments, chemistry, and software, we have sequenced more than 15,000 whole human genomes for our research customers over the past three years. Our mission is to provide the technology for sequencing one million human genomes, enabling researchers and clinicians to improve human health through the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of genetic diseases and conditions.

Complete Genomics was founded in 2006 by Dr. Clifford Reid and Dr. Radoje (Rade) Drmanac. It is currently a company of 200+ employees spanning multiple specialties: genomics, hardware engineering, biochemistry, molecular biology, bioinformatics, software, semiconductors, and operations.

In March 2013 Complete Genomics was acquired by BGI-Shenzhen, the world’s largest genomics services company. BGI is a 4,000-person company headquartered in Shenzhen, China that provides comprehensive sequencing and bioinformatics services for commercial science, medical, agricultural and environmental applications. BGI and its customers have generated over 250 publications in top-tier journals including Cell, Science, and Nature. BGI is recognized globally as an innovator for conducting collaborative projects globally with leading research institutions.

Prior to the acquisition by BGI, Complete Genomics was focused on selling whole genome sequencing services to over 150 research customers. After the acquisition, Complete Genomics transferred its research services business to BGI Tech, BGI’s research services business unit. Complete Genomics is now focused on building a new generation of high-throughput sequencing technology and developing new and exciting research, clinical and consumer applications.
