Genome Canada

Harnessing the transformative power of genomics to deliver benefits to Canadians.

Genome CanadaGenome Canada is an organisation that focuses on developing and applying genomic sciences that create economic wealth and social benefit for Canadians - working in partnership to invest in and manage large-scale research and translate discoveries into commercial opportunities, new technologies, applications, and solutions.

Genome Canada creates strong linkages between government, academia and industry to forge a genomics-based public-private innovation focused on key life science sectors.

To ensure effective management and monitoring of Genome Canada funded projects and science and technology platforms, Genome Centres have been established in each region across Canada. These Centres facilitate access to leading edge technology for researchers, allow for different approaches to project development and fundraising, and provide opportunities for public outreach programs at a regional level.
