The Department of Statistics maintains a broad range of research and

relevant units include the Michael Smith Laboratories, the Centre for
High Throughput Biology, the Life Science Institute, the Centre for

Columbia Cancer Agency (BCCA) there is also the Michael Smith Genome
Sciences Centre and the Terry Fox Laboratory. Many large scale projects

close collaboration with world class genome scientists.
