CoVSeQ is a partnership between the Institut National de Santé Publique du Québec (INSPQ) , the McGill Genome Center and C3G to sequence the viral genomes of Quebec patients with COVID-19 disease. C3G is in charge of developing pipelines and analyzing the sequenced genomes
C3G is a founding partner of COVID-19 Resources Canada, an online national platform to aggregate COVID-19 pandemic responses. This web community coordinates local volunteer initiatives, supports accelerated research and presents pandemic health issues in a trustworthy and accessible manner.
GenPipes was developed at the C3G as a flexible Python-based framework that facilitates the development and deployment of multi-step workflows optimized for High-Performance Computing clusters and the cloud. GenPipes comes with 12 validated and scalable pipelines for various genomics applications, including: RNA-seq, WGS, WES, ChIP-Seq, and HiC
Bento is an open-source genomic data sharing platform used to deploy data-focused portals. By adhering to existing and anticipated standards, APIs and schemas, such as from the Global Alliance for Genomics and Health (GA4GH), it facilitates interactions between various multi -omics research communities worldwide. Its reusable and interoperable components reduce the complexity and overhead of constructing data distribution portals. Many of our projects, such as the BQC19 and ICHANGE portals, rely on the Bento software infrastructure.
C3G supports data production and organization CGEn’s HostSeq project which aims to sequence genomes of 10,000 Canadians to help understand the genomic architecture of the host response to COVID-19.
