The high-tech equipment procured by the University of Pécs (PTE) for almost 800 million forints may also play a role in determining the genetic characteristics of the population and in drug development, the Baranya higher education institution wrote in a statement sent to MTI.

The machine and the related system were purchased with the support of the Operational Program for Economic Development and Innovation (Ginop), the equipment will be used by the genomics and bioinformatics research institute of the János Szentágothai Research Center within the university – it is clear from the PTE communiqué.

A system for mapping genes has been established in Pécs, which in Central Europe operates only in Prague and Vienna. As a result of the development, the research center has initiated the launch of a comprehensive, co-ordinated program covering several disciplines and fields of interest and representing the interests of the national economy, they wrote.

It is one of the goals of the Hungarian National Genome Program, which is expected to start with academic and market participants determining the genetic characteristics of the Hungarian population and facilitating the identification of new drug targets.
