How can genomics help in food production
Genomics is unlocking the secrets of DNA in all living things, including the things we eat. Sean Myles, Canada Research Chair in Agriculture Genetic Diversity, will provide an overview of how we can leverage this powerful tool to address key challenges such as:
- food safety and security
- climate change
