    The Illumina Accelerator Program is the world's first business accelerator focused on creating an innovation ecosystem for the genomics industry. Its goal is to speed the time to market and lower the barriers to entry for start-ups and early stage companies working on scientifically and commercially promising next-generation sequencing applications. Through the accelerator's six-month program, Illumina will provide participants with technology/business guidance, $100,000 in support, and access to lab space in close proximity to the company's R&D facilities in San Francisco's Mission Bay. Initial partners include technology investor Yuri Milner, who will offer each participating company $100,000 in exchange for convertible notes, and Silicon Valley Bank, which intends to provide banking services and credit to each participating company. Illumina will take a 10% common stock in startups that participate in the program.
