Explore a Genomics Opportunity

Genome Atlantic helps companies, researchers, and other partners assess, develop, and validate the potential of ‘omics R&D (informally refers to a field of study in biology ending in -omics, such as genomics, proteomics or metabolomics) to address a challenge or opportunity. They can employ a number of services or activities to help you; some of these opportunities may be eligible for the Genome Atlantic Genomics Opportunity Review Program.

Genome Atlantic can help you:

  • Determine and prioritise areas where ‘omics may provide benefit
  • Identify approaches to ‘omics R&D that may be required
  • Examine technology options best suited to the business and scientific landscape
  • Address gaps in expertise and resources
  • Develop an R&D roadmap for the initiative, including relevant funding sources, which may include: Genome Canada, NRC Concierge Service, NSERC programs, ACOA, Growing Forward II, CIHR and others

For example, Genome Atlantic facilitated a workshop for a small group of researchers, companies and a federal government department to determine the best ‘omics R&D approaches for environmental impact assessment of a regional industrial site.
