Sequencing and microarray solutions for identifying genomic changes in cancer

Cancer Research Products and Services

Illumina products and services facilitate cancer research by enabling the identification of genomic changes such as:

  • Germline and somatic variants
  • Gene fusions
  • Copy number variants
  • RNA expression changes
  • Epigenetic alterations

Illumina cancer research products support both next-generation sequencing (NGS) and microarray strategies for various study designs.

Oncology
