Partners & FundersIn partnership with Compute Canada and CANARIE, which operate the national High Performance Computing infrastructure and ultra-high speed backbone network, C3G also facilitates access to significant computing resources to accelerate genomic analyses.
CANARIE operates and evolves the national backbone of Canada’s ultra-high-speed National Research and Education Network (NREN), connecting to 12 provincial and territorial partner networks. This world-class 10 gigabit per second network is critical infrastructure supporting today’s data-intensive, globally collaborative research.
The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids), affiliated with the University of Toronto, is Canada’s most research-intensive hospital and the largest centre dedicated to improving children’s health in the country. As innovators in child health, SickKids improves the health of children by integrating care, research and teaching.
The McGill Genome Centre provides Canadian and international researchers with high-throughput technologies and cutting-edge approaches to enable next-generation genomic studies. Our Centre addresses key challenges in harnessing the power of next-generation sequencing (NGS) into innovation in biomedicine and the life sciences.
The Canadian Centre for Computational Genomics (C3G) has partnered with the
Goodman Cancer Research Centre (GCRC) to setup and operate a bioinformatics hub at the GCRC.
The CES offers high-quality sequencing (including massively parallel sequencing), genotyping, functional genomics and nucleic acid extraction services to the scientific community. It provides complete DNA and RNA analysis services, from a few samples to several tens of thousands per week, and works in close collaboration with the Canadian Centre for Computational Genomics in order to offer bioinformatics services.
