Sequence Bio is launching the pilot of the NL Genome Project this summer to research the genetic makeup of 2,500 volunteering participants in Newfoundland and Labrador.
By studying our province’s one-of-a-kind DNA and health information, we hope to discover better, safer medicines and improve how we treat and prevent diseases.
Sequence Bio is committed to benefiting the lives of individuals, families, and communities in Newfoundland and Labrador for generations to come. We’ll share any discoveries from the NL Genome Project with researchers, policy makers, and doctors across the province, and return genetic findings to participants.
By working together, we believe that Newfoundlanders and Labradorians can change lives at home and around the world.
Modern drug discovery relies on the right kind of information: real-world patient data that integrates pan-omics with well-characterized phenotypic information. And while this information isn't found everywhere, it is found in Newfoundland and Labrador.
We're always looking for exciting partnerships with companies that understand the value of human genetics as a platform for drug discovery and are willing to share our commitment to the people of Newfoundland and Labrador, so get in touch today!
We're a happy mix from all across Newfoundland and Labrador, with a higher than average affinity for ping-pong. Our kitchen always has some fresh Tetley on the boil and Jam Jam cookies in the cupboard. Get to know us a little more by clicking on our lovely mugs!

Sequence Bio is planning to conduct research in Newfoundland and Labrador, and doing so in an ethical and transparent way is our first priority. Our research efforts require approval by the Health Research Ethics Board (HREB). The words “believe,” “expect,” “anticipate,” and similar expressions, among others, generally identify our intent and/or objective to undertake research in this province and may be subject to change after HREB Review, and will continue to evolve as our business grows.
Therefore, to ensure full compliance with the process, Sequence Bio will not be sharing any information about planned research studies until approved.
