Genome British Columbia is pleased to announce that two existing BC research and technology platforms have been awarded funding through Genome Canada’s 2010 Science & Technology Innovation Centre (STIC) Operations Support Competition. The technology platforms, now called Science and Technology Innovation Centres (STICs), are led by Dr. Marco Marra of Canada’s Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre (GSC) which will receive up to $6.6 million, and Dr. Christoph Borchers of the UVic – Genome BC Proteomics Centre which will receive up to $3.4 million.

The two BC-based STICs (technology platforms) provide local, national and international researchers access to high-throughput genomics and proteomics technologies, such as DNA sequencing, RNA expression, and protein identification and quantitation, as well as new methods and protocols development, data analysis and bioinformatics. The STICs also offer support to scientists in the planning and execution of research plans, and will work with the researchers to determine which technology fits best with their project and how to design the research for maximum success.
