Descriptions of the GAPP 10 projects can be found here.Several of the GAPP projects benefit from Genome Canadas partnership with Mitacs, a not-for-profit organization that sup-ports industrial research internships for graduate students at Canadian universities. Additional support from Mitacs provides trainees the opportunity to spend time on-site with industrial re-search partners, gaining work-integrated-learning and building networks outside academia to support their professional skills development. These internships also strengthen the collabora-tion between academic researchers and industrial partners on GAPP projects.Successful translation of research into application often involves complex ethical, environmental, economic, legal and social is-sues, which Genome Canada addresses through GE3LS research. In addition to the integrated GE3LS research include in every LSARP project, Genome Canada supports stand-alone GE3LS research projects. This year, Genome Canada launched the Genomics in Society Interdisciplinary Research Teams (GiSIRT) program. This program is meant to facilitate collaborations and dialogue among GE3LSresearchers and other key stakeholders to ensure productive and responsible translation of innovative genomics applications. The call for proposals was launched this year, and projects will begin in spring 2020.Cutting-edge G enomics technology platforms form the backbone of Canadas genomics infrastructure. Ten Genomics technologies Technology Platforms are being supported for a total of up to $150 million, including co-funding, over five years, beginning in April 2017. The technology plat-forms provide the research community with the highest-quality omics technologies and advice. Each of the platforms provides researchers access to high throughput omics technologies such as DNA sequencing, proteomics and metabolomics. The plat-forms also provide researchers with new method and protocol development, data analysis and bioinformatics. These platforms are co-funded by provincial governments through the Genome Centres and through Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI).Genome Canada supports the development of the next gen-eration of technologies through a technology-development program, Disruptive Innovation in Genomics (DIG). This pro-gram supports Canadian research to adapt, adopt, and develop new approaches to support and complement current technolo-gies available to the Canadian research community. This year, Genome Canada invested $19.1 million with co-funding partners 20 Genome Canada Annual Report 2018-19'
