Extensive hands-on work in a functional genomic lab
Starts Fall 2020
Start your career in the emerging field of genomics. This program integrates molecular and cellular-based strategies to study the structure, function and regulation of an individual's genomic legacy. Learn to apply techniques such as genotyping and next generation sequencing to unlock the power of the genome. An emphasis will be placed on understanding the pathogenesis of diseases and learning how genetic variation interacts with an individual's environment, nutrition, and lifestyle. Canadore’s new innovative genomics laboratory is equipped with some of the most leading-edge technology in Canada including two DNA sequencers that provide the capacity for research in areas such as pharmacology, addictions, and disease prevention.

Ontario College Diploma, Advanced Diploma, or Degree, or equivalent in the following areas:
Biotechnology diploma program (2- or 3-year); undergraduate health science degree program; or, be a licensed health care provider (e.g. MD, ND, RPH, RN, CN, DMD, DC).
If English is not your first language you must provide proof of English competency. You must have a minimum overall band score of 6.0, with no band less than 5.5, on the Academic International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or equivalent accepted English language proficiency test to be admitted to a postsecondary program at the college. Notwithstanding the above, the English proficiency standards required to obtain Study Permits and Temporary Resident Visas from Canadian Embassies vary around the world. The higher English language proficiency standard will apply.
The Student Direct Stream (SDS) is an expedited study permit processing program for those who are applying to study in Canada at a post-secondary designated learning institution (DLI). The language requirement is more stringent than listed above, as such an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.0 or higher in each language skill: listening, reading, writing and speaking is required.

Learning outcomes represent culminating demonstrations of learning and achievement. In addition, learning outcomes are interrelated and cannot be viewed in isolation of one another. As such, they should be viewed as a comprehensive whole. They describe performances that demonstrate that significant integrated learning by graduates of the program has been achieved.
