Genome Canada Genome BC Announces C$10M to Study Clinical Genomics Implementation The funding, part of a larger initiative by Genome Canada, will support two studies in British Columbia that will evaluate genomics in healthcare. Thermo Fisher, Genome Canada Ink C$6M Collaboration on Cancer NGS Assays The assays will combine genomic and gene expression analyses to better understand driver mutations in prostate, breast, and pancreatic cancers. Genome Canada Awards C$76.7M in Research Grants The funding, provided in partnership with Agriculture and Agri-food Canada, will support research applying genomics in agriculture and aquaculture. Genome Canada, Partners Award $42.6M in Genomics, Informatics Research Funding The money is being provided under three Genome Canada funding competitions in partnership with the Canadian federal government and other groups. Canadian Government, Industry Invest C$21M in Genomic Applications Program The Genome Canada program will encourage the formation of private-public partnerships to develop gene-based technologies for healthcare and agriculture.
