The aim of the Research Programme was to combine the work and expertise of high-standard research groups from different fields. This enables the creation of large top-level research networks and groups and lifts the level of national and competitive know-how in the fields of the Programme that develop rapidly. At the end of the Programme, international experts evaluated the results and the influence of the Programme in the development of the field in Finland.
The Research Programme hosted both basic and applied research. The thematic fields included Genome Research, Population Genetics and Environmental Molecular Genetics.
