Ontario’s Genomics Community

Genomics at the Tipping Point

Building Ontario’s Growing Community of Practice

Genomics is transforming life as we know it. It is fueling innovations to solve challenges in health, agriculture and agri-food, industrial biotechnology, natural resources and the environmental sector.  Ontario Genomics is in a unique position to foster a platform approach that facilitates the convergence of disciplines and sectors – and it is happening now.  We have such a strong community and we know that it is at the intersection of disciplines and sectors that disruption happens.  By leveraging our respective advantages and collaborating on outcomes-focused solutions with all of our stakeholders – researchers, industry, policy-makers, and funders – together we can create new businesses and jobs, attract greater international investment, and help our industries to be more productive, sustainable and competitive globally.
Genomics at the Tipping Point:  Partnering to Accelerate Market Uptake & Impact


Dec. 5, 2018, Ontario Genomics hosted Genomics at the Tipping Point: Partnering to Accelerate Market Uptake & Impact, a captivating symposium focused on closing the gap between genomics innovations and market impact.  This symposium was organized to cross-pollinate between sectors and disciplines, to foster highly functioning collaborations and to open up new partnership opportunities.

A packed auditorium heard from innovators using genomics to advance the mining, agriculture and agri-food, bioengineering, natural resources and health sectors.  Presenters and panelists provided insights into critical elements for success and red tape, regulatory burdens and other hurdles, and discussed the power of partnership between researchers and end-users. See the symposium highlights (link below) for insights into how Ontario’s community of practice is driving genomics innovations into the market and into use!
