Increasingly, genomics is equipping a range of Canadian industries – agriculture, forestry, fisheries & aquaculture, energy, mining and health, among others – with cutting-edge science and technology. This is driving growth, productivity, commercialization and global competitiveness, while finding solutions to environmental sustainability challenges.
Genome Canada and the six regional Genome Centres across the country are working to harness the transformative power of genomics to deliver social and economic benefits to Canadians.
We have developed a series of sector strategies, developed in consultation with sector stakeholders, to map out how the sector can further leverage genomics to its advantage. And we are continuing to consult with sector representatives on a continual basis.
Given Canada’s footprint in these key sectors, coupled with our unique research strengths, the time is ripe for our industries to take full advantage of the power and promise of genomics.
