The foundation is working to accelerate its studies into the genetic underpinnings of cancer and other complex human diseases and further SOLiD Systems will be added to its existing base of genomics analysis technologies.

Overall, the college will have 20 systems, which scientists will utilise to conduct comprehensive analyses of the genetic changes that characterise cancer, autism and cardiovascular disease in humans.

"Baylor’s commitment to the SOLiD platform demonstrates that advanced genomic analysis technology is an effective discovery and clinical research tool that will ultimately advance personalised medicine," explained Shaf Yousaf, president of genomic analysis at Life Technologies.

This news comes after Life Technolgies’ non-profit division the Life Technologies Foundation announced that it has awarded approximately $1.7 million (1.06 million pounds) in new grants last week.
