The institute expects to announce its strategic plan in October 2020 to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the launch of the Human Genome Project.

Areas of concern are the recruitment of talented scientists, as well as retaining access to EU funding, European research collaborations, and clinical trials.

The agency aims to fund projects examining the ethical, legal, and social implications of human genome research.

The partners will explore the possibility of building a sequencing hub at the university for conducting local population cohort studies and diagnostic testing.

The new fund aims to advance data-driven innovations by investing in academic research on and the commercialization of genomic and other technologies.

Imagene will incorporate LifeNome's bioinformatics platform into consumer-facing genetic testing products to be marketed in China and Hong Kong. 

The funding will support projects involving the use of genomic technologies to improve human health and agriculture, as well as to address key environmental challenges.

In a pair of papers, the researchers reported that the sugar pine genome largely comprises transposable elements and contains conifer-specific Dicer-like proteins.

The metrics are intended to provide an objective and constant way of evaluating the value of the repositories as well as the datasets they contain.

Interviews with leading UK scientists revealed apprehension about losing access to European funding, limitations on freedom of movement, and an exodus of biotechs to the EU.
