The Public Population Project in Genomics (P3G), a Montreal-based nonprofit international consortium, will receive CAD 34.5 million ($32.3 million) in funding from the Canadian and Quebec governments, according to an announcement this May. P3G’s budget, which includes investments from international partners, may reach CAD 64.5 million ($60.4 million). The Canadian government expects P3G to improve Canada’s already strong position in population genomics research, and with members in 25 countries, the organization has a global reach and will take part in a number of large-scale genetic epidemiology projects. P3G plans to take a leadership role in facilitating international collaboration by addressing the legal and ethical issues connected to genomics research. CARTaGENE, an epidemiological and biological data bank, is also incorporated within P3G. Source: Genome Canada
