New research projects to enhance bioinformatics and computational biology tools and methodologies
Date:4/25/2013

trategies for agriculture, forestry management, bioenergy and aquaculture," said Pierre Meulien, President and CEO of Genome Canada.

"Technological advances in genomics and in high-resolution imaging promise to drastically improve the precision and efficacy of Canadian health care. However, the development of strategies to handle the enormous amounts of data generated from these technologies is essential for us to achieve their full potential. We are proud to be working together with our partners at Genome Canada and the regional Genome Centres in this new initiative in

bioinformatics and computational biology that will facilitate research in this critical area," said Paul Lasko, Scientific Director for CIHR's Institute of Genetics.

The Harper Government's investment in these projects is approximately $6.4 million ($5 million from Genome Canada and another $1.4 million from CIHR). The balance of funding is secured by regional Genome Centres from provincial governments, the private sector and other partners, bringing the total value of these projects to almost $11 million.

To build on Genome Canada's achievements to date, Economic Action Plan 2013 proposes to provide $165 million in 2014 to support Genome Canada's multi-year strategic plan.

Since 2006, the Harper Government has provided more than $9 billion in new funding for initiatives to support science, technology and the growth of innovative firms, helping to foster a world-class research and innovation system. Economic Action Plan 2013 builds on this strong foundation, helping to position Canada for sustainable, long-term economic prosperity and a higher quality of life for Canadians.
