Génome Québec announced today a total investment of $18.4 million in innovative projects on the environment. The Board of Directors of Genome Canada approved funding for eight Canadian projects under the Genomic Solutions for Natural Resources and the Environment competition with a budget allocation of $58.6 million. Six of the eight projects involve Québec researchers, which means Québec is receiving 31% of the overall budget available nationwide.


The projects will receive close to $4 million in co-funding from Génome Québec, which will be managing them in partnership with Genome British Columbia, Genome Alberta and Ontario Genomics. A total of 19 Québec researchers from various universities are working on these innovative projects that will advance our understanding of biodiversity in Québec and Canada and develop technologies for bioremediation and plastic waste recycling.
