The San Diego Economic Development Corp. just published “Cracking the Code: the Economic Impact of San Diego’s Genomics Industry”. San Diego is now ranked #1 in the nation for genomics patent productivity and for graduating genomics-trained talent. It takes 2nd place only to Boston in innovation and ranks 3rd for federal grant funding, venture investment in genomics, and future growth in genomics occupations. “San Diego’s competitive advantage lies in its ability to collaborate; players across the entire genomics ecosystem regularly come together to solve complex problems for the sake of the greater good and in the name of science. This idea – that collaboration is the underpinning of the local genomics ecosystem – is reflected throughout the study in the form of spotlights which highlight stories of innovation and collaboration throughout the region.” Just another reason that San Diego is “America’s Finest City”.
