The contribution will support research projects to develop molecular probes to study epigenetic mechanisms of gene regulation.

The partners created a consortium that will perform a metagenomics study into the role that microorganisms play in a "normal, safe factory environment." 

Illumina and collaborators from several consortia have developed a new genotyping microarray optimized for genome-wide association studies in populations of diverse ancestries and backgrounds.

Caprion, Asuragen, and the AIT Austrian Institute of Technology join the consortium launched in 2013 to develop blood-based tests for the early detection of cancers.
