NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Genome British Columbia has awarded a total of C$2 million (US$1.9 million) to support seven projects that will use a range of genomics for human health, biomedicine, and biology research.

The new projects, all located in BC, were funded under the Strategic Opportunities Fund (SOF), an initiative supported by Genome BC and several partners that seeks to catalyze new initiatives in areas of strategic importance to the BC region. These investments generally provide money for foundational research projects that will create a basis for future studies.
