Background: The accuracy of protein secondary structure prediction has steadily improved over the past 30 years. Now many secondary structure prediction methods routinely achieve an accuracy (Q3) of about 75%. We believe this accuracy could be further improved by including structure (as opposed...
Application of genomics-based tools leading to the identification of markers on bovine chromosome 14 influencing milk production and carcass quality traitsDownload
Genetic improvements in beef and dairy cattle can bring significant advances in satisfying the global food demand, which is expected to double by 2050. Several DNA markers have been identified on bovine chromosome 14 (BTA14), but low mapping resolution prevents their refinement for identification...
Previous studies of the grey wolf (Canis lupus) using microsatellites have showed strong population structure despite the high mobility of individuals. I re-assessed the structure of North American grey wolves by genotyping 132 wolves at a genome-wide set of >26 000 single nucleotide...

This thesis evaluates economic impact of adoption of crops developed by means of modern genomic tools. The economic impact of these improved crops is looked at from two different angles: the welfare implications from trading improved crops on the world market, and the benefits of adopting...
Social Contexts of Environmental Practices: How Sustainable Development Discourses and Trust Mediate the Use of Genomics in the Alberta Beef IndustryDownload
In the face of environmental degradation resulting from beef production, genomics may add to the options available to producers seeking to reduce their environmental impacts. This research seeks to understand cow/calf producer experiences with the environment, the environmental impacts of their...
Science Communication in Transition: Genomics Hype, Public Engagement, Education and Commercialization PressuresDownload
This essay reports on the final session of a 2-day workshop entitled ‘Genetic Diversity and Science Communication’, hosted by the CIHR Institute of Genetics in Toronto, April 2006. The first speaker, Timothy Caulfield, introduced the intersecting communities that promulgate a ‘cycle of hype’ of...
Genomic analysis of hybridization between the spruce budworm species Choristoneura fumiferana, C. occidentalis, and C. biennis (Lepidoptera: Tortricidae)Download
The spruce budworm (Choristoneura fumiferana) species complex is a destructive group of insect defoliators of North American conifers that have a remarkable propensity to hybridize ex situ despite little evidence for hybridization in nature. Introgression between species is increasingly...
Assessing the Feasibility of Learning Biomedical Phenotype Patterns Using High-Throughput Omics ProfilesDownload
A decade after the completion of the human genome project, the rapid advancement of the high-throughput measurement technologies has made omics (genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, metabolomics) profiling feasible. The availability of such omics profiles has raised the hope for the...
This research examines the applications of novel technologies (nanotechnology and genomics) and the public’s purchasing intentions in the Canadian food industry (national online surveys). Canadian consumers’ preferences and their willingness to pay for four hypothetical products treated with two...
