Field of Activity
Major funding for the McGill University and GÃ©nome QuÃ©bec Innovation Centre is provided by the Government of Canada through Genome Canada, and also the ministÃ¨re du DÃ©veloppement Ã‰conomique, de l'Innovation et de l'Exportation of QuÃ©bec.
The McGill University and GÃ©nome QuÃ©bec Innovation Centre is a world class research facility for genomics and proteomics. Founded in 2002, the Centre has developed a world-renowned expertise in complex genetic disorders such as cardiac disease, asthma and Type 2 diabetes, and has become a resource and a networking site for various research initiatives in human health, forestry, infectious diseases, agriculture and environment.
Ambitious projects in recent years are a testimony of the ability of GÃ©nome QuÃ©bec to provide data of exceptional quality in the pursuit of various genomics studies. The Innovation Centre provides complete DNA and RNA analysis services, from a few samples to several tens of thousands per week. Large-scale genomics and proteomics services at the Innovation Centre are articulated around sequencing (including massively parallel sequencing), genotyping, functional genomics and proteomics supported by a solid infrastructure, tools (Nanuq) and unique expertise in bioinformatics.
All services work in parallel to provide comprehensive, reliable services to the QuÃ©bec, Canadian and international scientific community. Located on the campus of McGill University in the heart of Montreal, the Innovation Centre acts as a vast resource of knowledge and technology to the academic and industrial sectors.
