Canadian effort will bring new tools for crop breeding

Rapid population growth, a changing climate, and increasing constraints on land, water, and nutrients threaten global food security. Canada must dramatically expand agricultural production to meet increased demand and to offset predicted declines in crop yields in tropical and subtropical countries. This will require that plant breeding be accelerated in Canada, with the goal of developing high yielding, climate-adapted and “planet friendly” varieties.

2017 Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Competition

Genome Canada is seeking proposals for research projects to address any aspect of bioinformatics and computational biology (B/CB) as it relates to genomics across all of Genome Canada’s sectors, i.e., human health, agriculture, aquaculture/fisheries, forestry, energy, mining and environment.

2017 Large-Scale Applied Research Project Competition

This funding opportunity, a partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), aims to support projects that will demonstrate how genomics-based research can contribute to a more evidence-based approach to health and, thereby, improve health outcomes, and/or enhance the cost-effectiveness of the healthcare system.

Genomics Day

This workshop will help provide Manitoba researchers information about Genome Canada funding opportunities and how past and current researchers have already successfully been awarded Genome Canada grants. This workshop will allow researchers to also participate in a facilitated working session to generate compelling project ideas and create winning teams.
