PeaCE (Pea Climate-Efficient): Developing climate-resilient, low carbon footprint field pea as a preferred rotation crop through the inter-disciplinary integration of genomic technologies

The global demand for food is expected to increase by 35–50% by 2050. To meet this demand and alleviate strain on agriculture, synthetic nitrogen fertilizers are increasingly applied to oilseeds and cereal crops to maximize yields. However, nitrogen fertilizer contributes to nitrous oxide emissions, a powerful greenhouse gas (GHG) that is approximately 300 times more

The role of genomics in fostering and supporting arctic biodiversity: Implications for wildlife management, policy, and Indigenous food security

Wildlife genome information is extremely valuable for environmental decision making, yet much remains unused for this purpose. This project draws together partners with expertise across disciplines, cultures and organizations, building upon team strengths in Arctic observation and monitoring, biology, conservation, cyber-cartography, data management, genomics, geography, Indigenous Knowledge, the legal and policy sciences, and resource management.

BioNet Alberta

In response to stakeholder consultations across the province, recommendations from post-secondary institutions, and support from the broader research and end-user community, Genome Alberta developed BioNet Alberta for Genome Canada’s Regional Priorities Partnership Program (RP3). BioNet Alberta is a diverse network-based approach to building provincial capacity in the area of bioinformatics and computational biology (B/CB). The

Transcriptional and epigenetic events underpinning Navacim-Induced TR1 cell formation and expansion

More than 100 autoimmune diseases have complex immune responses to autoantigens. Nanoparticles coated with autoimmune-disease-relevant peptide-major histocompatibility complexes (Navacims) have the potential to halt and cure autoimmune disease by restoring immune tolerance without compromising normal immunity to infections and cancer. They are currently the only technology that can activate internal generation of disease-specific regulatory T

Genomic testing of wastewater to promote public health and safeguard economic performance

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated the urgent need for early warning surveillance systems that can provide information to public health authorities on emerging COVID-19 variants and other infectious diseases. Wastewater-based epidemiology (WBE) is a non-invasive, comprehensive, and cost-effective early warning system that enables population-level monitoring independent of clinical testing. The research team has already developed

Application of genomics-based tools to select for pig disease resilience

Disease is an economically important trait in Canadian pork production and is one of the most difficult challenges to manage. It also contributes to poor public perception of food animal production in terms of animal welfare, food safety, and antimicrobial resistance. Pig breeding companies (Users) represented by PigGen Canada are the foundation of the Canadian
