The company is targeting the new product at researchers who need a comprehensive, pan-ethnic, and affordable solution to genotype many samples.

Three major European genomics service providers have founded a consortium to offer cost-effective, whole-genome genotyping on a new Illumina SNP array.

The company said the investments will support growth in its AncestryDNA genetic genealogy offering.

Under the agreement, customers will be able to purchase GeneSeek Genomic Profiler SNP arrays from Illumina, initially for genotyping cattle, pigs, and horses.
