Génome Québec, a private, non-profit organization established in 2000, plays a leading role in the genomics research community by financing the most relevant research projects and providing researchers with guidance to help them build expertise of international calibre.

Québec has every reason to be proud of the success of its genomics researchers, since they have earned global recognition for the quality of their work and for major discoveries made right here at home.

In the last 20 years, more than $1 billion dollars has been invested in genomics through Génome Québec. This includes investments from the provincial and federal governments, as well as from private partners.
