$4-M investment for genomics research in oil spill preparedness and emergency response in Arctic marine environment
Research Manitoba and The Government of Canada today announced $4 million in funding for GENICE: a large-scale applied research project (LSARP). LSARP is one of Genome Canada’s funding programs and is aimed at projects using genomic approaches to address challenges and opportunities of importance to Canada’s natural resources, including interactions between natural resources and the environment, thereby contributing to Canada’s bioeconomy and the well-being of Canadians.
“These genomic research projects strengthen Canada’s position as a leader in producing evidence-based solutions that will address some of our grandest challenges,” said the Honourable Kirsty Duncan, Minister of Science. “In addition to growing the economy and quality of life for middle-class Canadians, they will accelerate our drive toward clean technologies.”
