As the SING Canada program continues to build, so does our list of media, press and published resources.   Not only is news about our program spreading, but we also have more stories to tell ourselves. It is the new goal of each summer workshop to produce knowledge mobilization products including peer-reviewed publications (of which our participants will be co-authors), research-creation pieces and other relevant knowledge resources.  If you can’t find the information about our program here, please let us know what you are looking for and we’d be happy to help.


Reading List

The following readings have been selected to supplement lectures and discussions and to enhance the learning of our workshop participants.  The reading list is a compilation of articles meant to introduce some of the main concepts, methods, and approaches explored during our workshops but it is a helpful tool for anyone interested in learning more about Indigenous genomics. Do not be discouraged if you are unfamiliar with the material or have difficulty fully understanding it. The goal of reading is to begin familiarizing yourself with the material.
