Create a cooperative research community

Pool resources, reduce costs, and achieve great results together

Genomics Consortia

With a consortium, Illumina helps researchers who share similar goals join efforts to create economy of scale. Members work together privately or publicly to design and process custom genomics tools. They meet the needs of multiple researchers, at lower per-sample costs. Illumina coordinates, members pool resources, and everyone benefits.

Consortia products include high-powered genotyping arrays, targeted sequencing panels and other next-generation genetic analysis tools. From custom content to project management and bioinformatics, Illumina offers a comprehensive solution for consortia members.

Illumina is facilitating collaborative advances in human disease research with population-scale genome-wide association studies, fine-mapping studies or targeted candidate gene studies. Find open human consortia and consortium-built products that support high-throughput, multiplex studies of diverse populations and complex diseases.
