Génome Québec Competitions

  • 2019 Competition: Partnership – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC)

    Code : GQ
    Organisator : Agriculture et agrolimentaire (GQ )
    Year : 2019
    Duration : 4 years



    This partnership with AAFC was launched following the results of the Genome Canada LSARP 2018 Competition: Genomics Solutions for Agriculture, Agri-food, Fisheries and Aquaculture. Only the projects that were selected by Genome Canada but unable to be funded due to lack of funds were able to participate in this competition. In the same vein as the LSARP 2018 competition, AAFC aimed to encourage its scientists to foster collaboration with their academic and industry colleagues. Génome Québec saw it as a great opportunity to help establish new partnerships and allow Quebec researchers to be competitive at national level. In addition, these innovative partnerships allow Quebec to increase the economic development of this strategic sector.

    Finally, by partnering with AAFC, Génome Québec promotes the entry of federal money into the province and diversifies its collaborations with other sources of funding.

    Genomics Integration Program – Human Health



    Genomics Integration Program: In order to increase the value of genomic discoveries, Génome Québec is offering grants ranging between $50,000 and $200,000 to fund collaborations between academic researchers and partners capable of implementing/commercializing the results of their research. The funds are to be used to establish a proof of concept required to obtain subsequent funding. Projects must be related to Human Health and include at least one aspect derived from “omic” technologies (genomic, epigenomic, metabolomic, metagenomic, nutrigenomic, pharmacogenomic, proteomic, transcriptomic, etc.), for example: biomarker or target validation, pre-clinical studies for rare disease treatments, therapy response prediction tools, etc.
