The focus of Intake 6 is environmental DNA (eDNA). The intention of this intake is to support genomics research which will address gaps in eDNA analyses that pose barriers to extract and utilize environmental information. Specifically, research supported through this call will focus on the development and validation of eDNA techniques, standards and methods to drive and facilitate the adoption of eDNA by industry and government organizations. This intake builds on the discussions held with industry partners, including end users, and academics at the eDNA workshop held at Genome BC on May 2, 2019.
The focus of Intake 7 is Single-Cell Omics, which includes single-cell genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, proteogenomics, metabolomics, lipidomics, immunogenomics and bioinformatics, as well as the technologies enabling these single-cell omics approaches. Please see the SIP7 Info Sheet for more information regarding this intake.
Given the current situation with COVID-19 and the related closure of many institutions and disruptions to many work schedules, we have decided to extend the application deadline for the Sector Innovation Program – Intake 7. This will delay the notification of results, but we think that it is the best choice given the current challenges.
