Submission + - China wants your genes (

An anonymous reader writes: Beijing Genomics Institute (BGI) is looking for smart volunteers to donate their genes for analysis. They are seeking subjects with high intelligence, you can only qualify if you got a high score in SAT/ACT/GRE or got awards in competitions like Math/Physics Olympiads or TopCoder. They're also launching a drive to recruit US participants, their first stop appears to be Google, which has run into trouble with the Chinese government.

Also worth noting: BGI is registered in China as an "Institutional Organization", which by law requires it to report to a supervising governmental office or agency.
