The Genomics Innovation Network is designed to allow innovation centres across Canada to collaborate and harness their collective power for the advancement of genomics research. Each Node provides Canadian and international researchers with access to the leading-edge technologies required for research in genomics, metabolomics, proteomics and related areas. These Nodes are also well positioned to push the boundaries in terms of developing new technologies in genomics and related sciences.
The Metabolomics Innovation Centre at the University of Alberta was funded as Canada’s national metabolomics core facility and technology development centre where it will continue to provide researchers with resources for metabolomics research. The Node is led by David Wishart and Christoph Borchers.
