Project Description: 

This leading international Centre for genomics and bioinformatics research supports scientists in BC and around the world in addressing critical questions in the life sciences, with a focus on human cancers. As one of the largest capacity genomics centres of its type in Canada, the Centre specializes in high-throughput, large-scale genome research activities including cancer genetics, bioinformatics, DNA sequencing (the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule), data analysis, gene expression profiling, and technology development. The Centre also provides training in bioinformatics for health researchers.
