eHealth and mHealth Pipelines for Clinical Decision Support to Improve Medication Selection and SafetyDownload
Although much work has been done over the past decade on developing personalized and evidence-based medicine, such as diagnostic tests based on genetics to better predict patients' responses to therapy, stumbling blocks remain that have prevented knowledge, tests, and other pertinent...

Includes presentation abstracts for authors listed as well as abstracts for posters by K. Marx, A. Kiehne, M. Meyer; Saifur R. Khan, Argishti Baghdasarian, Richard P. Fahlman, Arno G. Siraki; S.N. Reinke, D.I. Broadhurst, C. Power; Shereen A. Elbayomy, Mark T. McDermott; Simon Ng, Mohammad R....
The successful diffusion of new agricultural biotechnologies depends on widespread producer acceptance and uptake. The assessment of the key factors that can influence producer decision making is fundamental to the understanding of the rate of uptake, the attainable rate of potential benefits and...
The isolation and characterization of two Stenotrophomonas maltophilia bacteriophages capable of cross-taxonomic order infectivityDownload
Background A rapid worldwide increase in the number of human infections caused by the extremely antibiotic resistant bacterium Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is prompting alarm. One potential treatment solution to the current antibiotic resistance dilemma is “phage therapy”, the clinical...
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...
Rumen microbial community composition varies with diet and host, but a core microbiome is found across a wide geographical rangeDownload
Ruminant livestock are important sources of human food and global greenhouse gas emissions. Feed degradation and methane formation by ruminants rely on metabolic interactions between rumen microbes and affect ruminant productivity. Rumen and camelid foregut microbial community composition was...
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...
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...
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...
