Since the late 1960s, a fatal disease known as chronic wasting disease (CWD) has threated cervid populations in the prairies. Dr. Debbie McKenzie and Dr. David Wishart of the University of Alberta are leading research that will use genomics and metabolomics to develop tools to test cervids and their environment, identify CWD strains, model risk and reduce the spread of the disease. Honeybees play a critical role in Canadian agriculture. They are Canadianresponsible for pollinating many crops, nuts and oil seeds and contribute more than $4.6 billion Honeybees to the Canadian economy annually. Since 2006, Canadian beekeepers have lost more than a quarter of their colonies. Dr. Leonard Foster of the University of British Columbia and Dr. Amro Zayed from York University have teamed up to develop genomics and proteomics tools to breed healthy, disease-resistant, productive bee colonies that are better able to survive Canadian winters. 6 Genome Canada Annual Report 2018-19'
