Genome British Columbia

URL:www.genomebc.ca
  • Abundance of well organized information on nanotechnology
  • None
Thinking about opportunities up north, eh? If so, Genome British Columbia may well be of interest for those with a molecular biological bent. The Overview page describes the $60-million investment program supporting genomics and (indirectly) agriculture, bioenergy, environment, fish and fisheries, forestry, and mining. The site’s rather schizophrenic nature (research/technology, society/ethics, applied genomics, and genomics education under one roof) works reasonably well, due to careful consideration of the needs of prospective customers. While the site itself leaves a bit to be desired in terms of labeling of information, the diversity of research interests and miscellaneous information (including a section on careers) makes the visit a worthwhile one. Definitely worth a look-see for anyone interested in genomics up north in Canada.
