    Thanks, @Frog. There are two annual reports there at the start of the home page, one for the overall FUNDIS group and one for the California branch year 1 report. They are both beautifully presented and engaging reads.
    I see that the US national group gets 91% of its funds from government grants - $300K. Is there a similar Canadian group? With government funding?

    Not that I know of ... periodically there are sequencing projects in Canada where funding was available for a short period of time, but otherwise folks in Canada have recently been sending in specimens for sequencing to FunDis.
