+ - China wants your genes->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
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."
