Genome Canada funds and manages large-scale, milestone-driven genomics1 research projects in the areas of agriculture, energy, environment, fisheries, forestry, health, and mining. Genome Canada’s mission also includes a commitment to provide researchers across Canada access to leading edge genomic technologies, whether their projects are funded by Genome Canada or other organizations. Genome Canada fulfils this part of its mandate by supporting a number of genomics technology platforms across Canada.
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.
