Design and analysis of population demographic experiments for use in environmental risk assessments for genetically modified cropsDownload
Genetically modified crops with putative fitness-enhancing traits are being field-tested throughout Canada and the world, but robust methods with which to compare their fitness with conventional cultivars are lacking. Additionally, field analyses of GM crops in non-agricultural areas are...
Environmental biosafety of genetically engineered camelina [Camelina sativa (L.) Crantz.] for use as a bio-product cropDownload
Camelina is currently being evaluated as bioindustrial platform crop on the Canadian Prairies. Prior to unconfined release of genetically engineered (GE) camelina, an environmental risk assessment must be conducted. Camelina pollen-mediated gene flow (PMGF) was assessed using a dominant DsRed...
Hydrogenation-derived renewable diesel (HDRD) is a promising alternative fuel due to its excellent low-temperature properties, cetane number, and similarity to fossil diesel. Using Alberta as a basis, data-intensive techno-economic models and life cycle assessment models were developed to...
Using Alternate Omega-3 Polyunsaturated Fatty Acid Sources for the Enrichment of Broiler Meat and Table EggsDownload
A series of experiments was conducted to explore the potential of including novel sources of omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (n-3 PUFA) in broiler and laying hen diets. Camelina cake (CC), the co-product remaining after pressing of oil from camelina seed for biofuel production, was fed to...
