BC scientists at forefront - Castanet.net

Scientists from Canada, the European Union, Germany, Japan, Singapore and the United States collaborated via the International Human Epigenome Research Consortium. “Now that a baseline picture of the epigenome is taking shape, we can start to integrate information about the effects of the environment, aging and disease on the epigenome,” said Martin Hirst, with the B.C. Cancer Agency and associate professor in microbiology and immunology at UBC. Hirst and colleague Connie Eaves focused on epigenomes' role in breast cancer and stem cells.  A team led by Marco Marra at Canada's Michael Smith Genome Sciences Centre used similar methods to identify epigenetic changes thought to contribute to the development of rare childhood cancers.  Let's block ads!

New Champlain Bridge will be finished on time, minister promises - CBC.ca

Thursday, August 18, 2016

Marc Dutil, the president of CANAM, one of the groups working on the project. The project is funded by a public-private partnership between Infrastructure Canada and a consortium chosen by Ottawa. Sohi said Friday the project is on schedule and on budget. He also confirmed that the finished bridge will not have tolls. When the previous Conservative government announced plans to build the new bridge, they said it would be partially paid for by tolls. The Liberals reversed that decision after taking power last year.     An internal federal government memo, obtained by The Canadian Press, estimated the decision to ditch plans to install the tolls will knock about $301 million off the final construction price. The current bridge was built in 1962 but has been deteriorating in recent years. In 2011, when it was announced that the bridge would be replaced, an estimated 140,000 cars were using it each day. The new Champlain Bridge is expected to be completed by 2018. (Infrastructure Canada) Let's block ads! (Why?)...

Plant scientist Ralph Hardy, who led GMO foods debate, dies - Cornell Chronicle

Friday, August 12, 2016

Aug. 2 in Wilmington, Delaware, at age 82. Hardy was the founding director of the North American Agricultural Biotechnology Council (NABC), a 20-member consortium of American and Canadian research universities and government agencies. He was also president and CEO of the Cornell-affiliated Boyce Thompson Institute, from 1986 to 1995, and a research biochemist at DuPont, from 1963 to 1984, where he engineered the firm’s move into life sciences technology. As a spokesman for university-based biotechnology research, Hardy never missed an opportunity to testify to Senate and House committees, and to cultivate public understanding of agricultural biotechnology through the media. NABC conferences and publications became a forum for critics of genetically modified foods, like Ralph Nader, as well as research scientists and policy makers. “The media has a huge appetite for biotechnology stories,” Hardy said in 2015. “Nowadays scientists need more than ever to devote time to non-laboratory functions. Guidance and vision to help society understand the realistic benefits and risks of their activities – without jargon – is a necessity.” Ralph Wilbur Frederick Hardy was born July 27, 1934, in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada. He studied at the University of Toronto (master’s in 1958)...
