Advancing Big Data Science in Genomics Research

This call for proposals focused on advancing big data science in genomics research. The aim of this initiative was to support the development of tools and methodologies to integrate currently available complex data sets in the fields of ‘omics sciences with each other, as well as phenotypic data and data from other related fields of biological sciences. Fund overview In 2013, the CFI partnered with the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC), the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and Genome Canada to fund a proposal through the Discovery Frontiers Call for Proposals: Advancing Big Data Science in Genomics Research . Massive amounts of data are being generated by genomics research across all life science sectors. The lack of efficient tools and methodologies available to effectively mine,…
