This is Agriculture ‑ Sean Myles ‑ a focus of Community Open House

Posted by Stephanie Rogers on June 26, 2015 in News

DR. SEAN MYLES has a big mission ahead of him. Believing that food should always be diversifying, the assistant professor and Canada Research Chair in Agriculture Genetic Diversity is examining trillions of letters that make up part of DNA sequences of apples and grapes.

His research is intended to identify new varieties of such fruits. Creating new varieties is critical to preserving and reinventing our food sources, so that foods we consume today - like apples and grapes - will still be available for years to come.
