DISCOVER THE REAL IMPACTS OF GENOMICS IN OUR LIVES…

Genomics is a new discipline that holds tremendous promise for many sectors of activity. Human health is where it will no doubt have the greatest impact.

STORIES WITH REAL IMPACTS:

Health - Intro


Benefits for human health

Guy Sauvageau

The news hits you like a ton of bricks : ''You have a leukemia.'' In 2015, 6,200 Canadians will receive this diagnosis and 2,700 will not survive it.

Environment - Intro


Benefits for agrifood and environment 

Adrian Tsang

Farm animals such as pigs and chickens cannot assimilate all the nutrients they ingest. Their digestive systems do not have all the enzymes required. Nonetheless, researcher Adrian Tsang will provide the missing enzymes from fungi and is adding them to their meals.

Agrifood - Intro


Benefits for agrifood

Steve Labrie

You would never guess how many life forms thrive on a cheese. Yet that’s where all the flavour comes from! Steve Labrie explores the microscopic world of cheeses and maps the genes of the bacteria and fungi that proliferate on their surface – all in aid of helping the cheesemaking industry improve its products.

Forest - Intro


Benefits for forestry 

Jean Bousquet

While our ancestors were able to promote the development of agriculture through traditional selection methods, Jean Bousquet’s goal is to revolutionize forestry through genomic selection. His approach: to reforest with trees whose genes have passed the test even before they are planted.
