New research projects to enhance bioinformatics and computational biology tools and methodologies
Date:4/25/2013

This press release is available in French.

Ottawa, ON, April 25, 2013 New Canadian bioinformatics and computational biology research projects will help manage, analyze and interpret vast amounts of genomics data to accelerate advances in personalized medicine, public health and other areas of importance to Canadians and the economy.

"Our government is investing in the technological solutions needed to advance genomics to its full potential for the benefit of Canadians and their families," said the Honourable Gary Goodyear, Minister of State (Science and Technology). "These leading-edge research projects will put Canada at the forefront of innovation globally in the specialized fields of bioinformatics and computational biology."

Through Genome Canada's 2012 Bioinformatics and Computational Biology Competition, a partnership with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR), 17 projects across the country will receive funding.

The mix of large-scale applied and small-scale innovative projects will produce new tools and methodologies to enhance genomics data management and analysis, contributing to improving cancer treatments, quicker responses to infectious disease outbreaks, improved food production, and more. Bioinformatics expands the use of genomics data through the research, development or application of computational tools and approaches. It enables better ways to acquire, store, organize, archive, analyze and visualize data. Computational biology helps make sense of genomics data through computational analysis, modelling, and prediction.

"Managing and analyzing the huge amounts of data generated by genomics technologies is a major challenge. These new projects will offer much-needed innovations that will address this dilemma so that the data can translate into useful genomics applications such as disease treatments, breeding s
