NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – The National Research Council of Canada said today that a new bioinformatics lab has opened at the University of Moncton in New Brunswick as part of a multi-partner initiative.
The NRC said it will provide workstations and software tools for researchers to use in bioinformatics projects with partners the Atlantic Cancer Research Institute and the University of New Brunswick.
"Collaborative research projects such as this increase the competitiveness of a region, creating a dynamic location where companies, government, and universities can network, invest and bring innovative technologies to market," NRC President Pierre Coulombe said in a statement. "This will result in new knowledge, new skills, new partnerships and new business opportunities focused on the priorities of Canadians."
The lab will support research into data analysis and mining, as well as knowledge discovery techniques, and tools that can be used in health, energy, and environmental research.
