Genomics on the Hill 2017

More than a dozen exceptional researchers from across Canada gathered on Parliament Hill on February 6, 2017, to engage Parliamentarians in a dialogue about genomics – the science that examines the genetic code and the function of genes within the DNA of all living things. 

Specifically, they showcased how genomic technologies are being applied in Canada today to solve big challenges in the areas of precision health and climate change.
