Genomics Research in BC

As Director of Canada's Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre, Dr. Marra was intimately involved in the recent decoding of the SARS virus genome. His lab at the BC Cancer Research Centre was recognized by the WHO as the first laboratory in the world to achieve this goal. Although a major research focus at the GSC is cancer genomics and informatics, the Centre is engaged in genomic research activities focused on a diversity of organisms important in a number of science areas, including forestry, agriculture and the environment.
