Abstract

Genomics is the study of living organisms’ genetic material, both in its structure and in its functions. Over the past twenty years, this science has advanced remarkably with the progress of sequencing techniques aimed at decoding DNA. Its applications help advance knowledge in a variety of sectors such as human health, agri-food, fishing and aquaculture, mining, energy, environment, and... forestry! Research teams at the Laurentian Forestry Centre (LFC) and the Canadian Wood Fibre Centre (CWFC), two research centres at Natural Resources Canada’s Canadian Forest Service (CFS), are at the forefront of research and technological transfer in these various areas. This document is an overview of the work that is being conducted.
