The field of tree genomics has seen unprecedented advances over the past decade. A suite of next generation genomic resources for improved tree breeding and selection will soon become available to breeders and forest managers, thanks to a project led by Drs. Ingo Ensminger (University of Toronto) and Nathalie Isabel, (Forest and Environmental Genomics at…
Looking at the evolution of genetic technology from its genesis with Mendel’s peas to population-level analysis of genomes, what we see is that each new breakthrough has first seen large-scale commercial deployment in agriculture.
The past couple of decades, genetics has revolutionized fields such as agriculture, criminal justice, and-of course-medicine. In the next couple, expect DNA to turn up in such far-flung disciplines as archaeology, fine arts, and computing.
Innovations showing evidence of early promise for improving global health will “transition-to-scale” thanks to new support from Grand Challenges Canada, funded by the Government of Canada.
Researchers at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, funded in part by OICR, have found a genetic switch that could be used to develop many more stem cells from the blood found in umbilical cords.
