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.
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.
The Genomic Applications Partnership Program will fund downstream research and development (R&D) projects that address real world challenges and opportunities as identified by users of genomics research (i.e. industry, government, not-for-profits and other organizations). Downstream R&D includes proof of concept, validation or development of a product, tool or process having significant commercial market potential, or other measurable impact.
