Vision, Mission and Goals

OPAL’s vision is three-fold:

  • To become the premier service platform for omics technology, providing genomics, phenomics and informatics services to a broad range of clients;
  • To become a leader in omics innovation by developing new platforms; and
  • To be a catalyst for enhanced collaboration across the entire agriculture and food value chain.

Our mission is to create, discover, understand and deploy new genetic variation and traits to benefit the agriculture and food sectors. We will do all this as we provide a unique integrated platform to service the genomics, phenomics and bioinformatics needs of agriculture and food stakeholders.

At OPAL, our goals are to lower costs and increase the value of the services received by our stakeholders, and to encourage enhanced scientific collaboration.
