Myles, Sean, PhD

Ass. Professor, Nova Scotia Agricultural College

Dr Myles uses genetic data to detect and dissect the effects of domestication and breeding on various crops, especially grapes and apples. By sequencing and analyzing our food's DNA, he is unraveling the story of our intimate relationship with the organisms that sustain us. The insights from his research not only give us a better understanding of our past, but they also inform us on how to better manage our food supply in the future.
