Funded Projects

Some projects we are currently working on…

Canadian COVID-19 Genomics Network (CanCOGeN): VirusSeq Project
Genome Canada / ISED special project associated with the $40 million dollar CanCOGeN government initiative. I am a co-PI and on the main Implementation Committee for this project involving 42 Canadian universities, hospitals, government labs, industry, and genome centres. I also co-lead the VirusSeq Data Analytics Working Group, lead the Research Collaborations Working Group, and am a participant on other committees including Ethics and Governance and Data Sharing.
