A fact sheet created by Genome Canada exploring the ways genomics can help find solutions to the challenges facing Canada’s forest sector.
A report prepared by SRK Consulting identifying the ways in which the science of genomics could benefit the mining industry, economically and environmentally. The analyses reveals the many potential applications for genomics within mining, supporting activities ranging from exploration geology, baseline studies, and mineral extraction, to remediation and mine closure.
A fact sheet created by Genome Canada exploring the ways genomics can help find solutions to the challenges facing Canada’s energy sector. Enhancing hydrocarbon energy, coal and metal mining operations through genomics can help boost Canada’s outputs and advance international leadership in a field already worth $1.25 trillion.
A Sector Strategy funded by Genome Canada developed in consultation with sector stakeholders, to map out how the forestry industry can further leverage genomics to its advantage.
A Genome Canada Sector Strategy led by Genome Alberta and Ontario Genomics, presenting a blueprint to advance the energy and mining sector through integration of recent scientific breakthroughs with existing industry operations, and new biotechnological processes.
Genomics holds the promise to revolutionize Canada’s bioproducts sector by its ability to directly impact the three areas presenting the biggest challenges in advancing bioproducts value chains: Feedstock Optimization; Microorganisms for Sustainable Processing Technologies; and Value Added-Bioproducts. This position paper, prepared by the Biofuels and Bioproducts Genomics Working Group, calls for the adoption of the strategic research theme ”Securing Canadas Future Bio-based Economy through Genomics” as a priority and major focus for Genome Canada.
