Recruitment into FORGE/CARE4RARE Gene Discovery Cohorts is now finished. We will continue studying all unsolved projects in C4R - Solve. To learn more about our current gene discovery projects, click the links below:  


C4R - Solve

Genomics4RD is the first pan-Canadian rare disease data repository and analysis platform and a major portion of C4R - Solve. Genomics4RD will facilitate precision medicine, harmonize data collection and foster data sharing on an international scale.

C4R - Solve will optimize the delivery of clinical genome wide sequencing and use multi-omic approaches, global data-sharing and new bioinformatics to deliver innovative diagnostic care for rare genetic diseases.
