In our first 10 years of operation (2005 to 2015), Genome Alberta has funded and managed $155.6M in genomics research and partnerships. We have been able to leverage every dollar of core funding into $9.06 of genomics research. As of the end of March 31st, 2015 we have been part of 72 projects since we began operation and are already adding to that total.
Here is a list of our active projects and if you would like more information about our project portfolio please send us an e-mail
