mapnetThe Virtual Institute of Statistical Genetics resulted from a successful grant proposal put together by the 2007 MapNET steering committee. Founded in 2005, MapNet is a collective of New Zealand-based researchers from organisations involved in gene mapping.

Other activities by MapNet include holding annual molecular mapping workshops, encouraging informal collaborations and interacting with CRI and University managers.
