UW Genetics wants to collect American DNA U.S. media: funded by Bill Gates

Early last March, Washington State was the site of the first outbreak of coronavirus, a Chinese Communist virus, in the United States. Due to a surge in demand for coronavirus testing, Washington State was approached by the BGI Group, the Chinese Communist Party‘s purportedly largest biotech company in the world, with an attractive offer.

In a private letter to the governor, BGI offered to build and help run a state-of-the-art coronavirus testing laboratory. UW Genetics would “provide technical support” and “instrumentation for high-throughput determination of amino acid or other monomer sequences in biopolymers” and even “additional donations.

That sounds like an offer the state can’t refuse, especially if the need arises. But officials have expressed skepticism about UWM and its ties to the Chinese Communist government.

“A modern-day Trojan horse”

Bill Evanina, a former U.S. counterintelligence official, said the lab was offering a modern-day Trojan horse.

Evanina said the UW came to the U.S. with gifts, but harbored other motives. “It’s not clear whether UW or any COVID tester will get DNA from nasal swabs, but the lab is a way to establish a foothold, bring its equipment here, start mining the data and establish a stronghold in your neighborhood stores.”

Formerly known as Beijing Genome Research Institute, Huada Genetics is based in Shenzhen, China, and specializes in gene sequencing. The company plays an important role in the development of international genomics research for the Chinese Communist Party. UW Genetics manages China’s National Genome Bank, a giant genomic database funded by the Chinese Communist government.

At least 11 states from Alabama to South Dakota have said they received offers to have UW Genetics conduct outbreak testing or set up testing labs that could be implemented quickly. While nearly all states have firmly rejected UW’s offer, the federal government is not so adamant.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted emergency use authorization for coronavirus testing to UW’s U.S. subsidiary, UW Genetics America (BGI Americas). When asked by the Wall Street Journal, the FDA declined to comment.

And then, Nevada eventually obtained outbreak testing equipment from UW, including nasal swabs, but did not request testing instruments.

The Gates Foundation and the UW

National Pulse noted that in September 2012, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to enter into “a collaboration on global health and agricultural development aimed at achieving common goals for health and agricultural development.”

The agreement supports “the rapid and widespread dissemination of information from the collaborative project …… (and) broad access to any technology generated by the project.”

The UW co-founder praised the agreement and celebrated the upcoming “scientific breakthroughs in human, plant and animal genomics.” He also revealed that UW’s collaboration with the Gates Foundation is focused on sequencing the genome – a precise activity labeled as a threat to U.S. national security.

“Contributed to the Human Genome Project and sequenced the genomes of many important plant and animal species and human diseases, including the initial sequencing of the rice genome ….. …BGI looks forward to this important collaboration with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to apply genomics research for the benefit of human global human health.”

The Gates Foundation has also funded UW projects related to genome sequencing, along with the Ministry of Science and Technology of the Communist Party of China and the Academy of Agricultural Sciences, among others. The Gates Foundation’s stated goal is to “start a second green revolution.”

In 2016, UW Genetics opened a U.S. office in Washington State, Home of the Microsoft and Bill Gates foundations.

Speaking about China’s efforts to steal U.S. DNA, Fox News medical contributor Dr. Siegel told host Tucker Carlson, “There’s no such thing as a free lunch.” He continued, “They’re mining my DNA, your DNA. they’re going to combine it with the lifestyle data that they stole from us.”

Dr. Siegel told Carlson that unless these practices are stopped, the Chinese Communist Party will “control our health care.
