Next Generation Sequencing was developed to produce genome sequencing at a reasonable cost. A Next Generation Sequencing platform has been established within the Children’s Hospital Research Institute of Manitoba.

This platform, created in partnership with the University of Manitoba, CancerCare Manitoba, the Canada Foundation for Innovation, and the Manitoba Research and Innovation Fund will give Manitoba researchers the tools required to advance discoveries in areas such as epigenetics, cardiovascular research, cancer, diabetes, stem cell biology and other areas of human disease.
