We have hit full stride in our mission to advance genomic medicine through research and education. The Centre’s investments have been instrumental in bringing the University of Toronto to the forefront in genome sequencing and its applications in medicine. We support the world’s largest ‘open science’ genome sequencing project applied to autism. We have enabled a generous partnership between Illumina Inc. and our researchers, for the application of genome sequencing to any family in need of diagnosis.
