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...
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...

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...
This thesis is divided in two papers, each focusing on a distinct issue. In the first paper (Chapter 2), public preferences for poplar biotechnology are examined in western Canada. Using a sample of the public from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba, respondents were asked to...
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...
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...
Abstract The ability to identify and remove sub-fertile boars from the breeding herd is critical to improving reproductive efficiency of pork production systems. Use of semen from sires exhibiting sub-fertility can result in decreased sow pregnancy and farrowing rates, as well as smaller litter...
