We have focused on readying the company for the near-term commercialisation of its 3D genomics technology platform, EpiSwitch™.

“As we announced during the year, our R&D project revenues were affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, but we were pleased to continue working with several partners throughout the year and to plan for the expansion of our strategic focus, which we announced in December.
