Dawei Lin set up the first bioinformatics server in China back in 1995. And things have come full circle this past summer, as he was involved in setting up a new high speed connection between China and the Genome Center at UC Davis where he is Director of the Bioinformatics Core. Dawei worked with BGI to set up the connection. We ask him about the company and about genomics in China.
It's Dawei's passion to know himself that brought him to working with biological data.
