How is genomics changing the world? Watch the video to find out.


Genome Atlantic wants to make sure that all Atlantic Canadians understand the power of genomics. We provide educational tools for the public and for schools to learn about this fascinating area of science.

Our website contains helpful articles, activities, classroom presentations, videos and other curriculum materials for grades 9-12. Much of the material was developed and sourced by Genome British Columbia, and we are very grateful for the use of it.
