Through a successful Canadian Foundation for Innovation grant the Richards lab consists of:

  • two large DNA freezers
  • one fridge
  • robot-based DNA sample storage for the processing and quantification of approximately 22,000 DNA samples


We have a computational core consisting of:

  • cutting edge servers
  • 12 Linux machines with 80 TB of data storage and 240 processors, each with 64 GB of RAM

The purpose of this computational facility is to enable the computational analyses of next-generation data arising from several billion genetic variants in the human genome on thousands of individuals.
