CIHR invests $15M into development of genome library


The Government of Canada’s Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) has invested $15M to create a Pan-Canadian Genome Library (PCGL). This library will enhance the sharing of genomic data and support the development of a national strategy for capturing, storing, and accessing Canadian data. The creation of PCGL will be led by McGill University’s Dr Guillaume Bourque, who will lead a team of over 30 researchers from McGill and partner institutions such as Université de Montréal, University of British Columbia, and York University.
