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.
Genome Canada, along with its partners, is pleased to announce the Discovery Frontiers: Advancing Big Data Science in Genomics Research funding opportunity. Discovery Frontiers (DF) grants—a Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council (NSERC) program—support a limited number of large international activities, opportunities or projects that are of high priority in the context of advanced research in Canada.
Massive amounts of data are being generated by genomics research across all life science sectors. The lack of efficient tools and methodologies available to effectively mine, rapidly access and efficiently analyse vast quantities of genomic information and integrate it with other data sets is a major challenge for the research community.
Genome Prairie works with regional stakeholders to develop projects related to key provincial priorities. These projects are developed and funded on an ad-hoc basis. Saskatchewan and Manitoba based researchers and industry consortia are encouraged to contact us with project ideas.
