BGI to Sequence and Assemble 100 Vertebrates within Two Years for Genome 10K Project

Got to know of this news by www.genomeweb.com

BGI to sequence 100 vertebrate species for Genome 10K project. Andrea Anderson. May 14, 2010. GenomeWeb.

The http://www.genome10k.org/ project has lofty aims to capture ".. the genetic diversity of vertebrate species would create an unprecedented resource for the life sciences and for worldwide conservation efforts."

I do wonder however, if the selection will be biased towards life sciences or conservation... Never the twain shall meet? or am I wrong?
