Armand Séguin has been a research scientist at the Canadian Forest Service’s Laurentian Forestry Centre since 1995.

His research program centres on increasing current understanding of the molecular mechanisms of stress responses in trees, tree genetic engineering, and the potential impacts of transgenic trees on the environment. The studies conducted in his laboratory have helped to advance knowledge in tree molecular biology and support scientific expertise in the field of regulation of genetically modified trees in Canada.

Our research is funded by the Canadian Genomics R&D Initiative, the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and Genome Canada–Génome Québec
