Manage the research, not the process

Advancing the understanding of agrigenomics

Agriculture Consortia

With an agriculture consortium, members work together privately or publicly to advance the collective understanding of agrigenomics. We facilitate collaborations between breeders and researchers so they can develop custom products for their species of interest. Members pool resources, Illumina coordinates, and everyone benefits.

Our microarray technology is the foundation of many agriculture consortia products, with new groups forming every year. Learn about currently open consortia, publicly available BeadChip arrays, and products in development.
