Social Impact

Rapid advances in genomics and related research and their applications present new and complex issues for individuals and society. For this reason, Ontario Genomics supports not only scientific research but also projects that aim to better understand and address new discoveries’ effects on society.

At Ontario Genomics, and across the Genome Canada family of regional genome centres, we refer to this research as “GE³LS research” – on genomics-related economic, environmental, ethical, legal, and social issues.
