Illumina Will Divest Cancer Test Maker Grail Following Antitrust Battles

Gene sequencing company Illumina said on Sunday it will divest cancer diagnostic test maker Grail after the companies battled both US and European antitrust enforcers for more than two years and faced fierce opposition from activist investor Carl Icahn.
