DARPA's Epigenetic CHaracterization and Observation (ECHO) program will utilize an individual’s epigenome to reveal their history of exposure to weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and WMD precursors. The program will build a field-deployable platform capable of using the epigenome to diagnose biothreat exposures and infections and support military forensics operations to counter-WMD proliferation.

TA1 will sequentially:

1) Generate molecular epigenetic datasets associated with relevant WMD and/orprecursor exposure

2) Characterize and define exposure-specific epigenetic signatures

3) Identify unknown exposures using the ESP

TA2 will build an integrated device to achieve:

1) Epigenetic molecular analysis integration

2) Onboard computational and bio-analytical capability
