Ep. 007: How Genomics is Helping Combat Invasive Pests & Pathogens (w/ Richard Hamelin, UBC) The Code of Life

Healthy forests support a healthy environment. They purify the water and the air, maintain wildlife habitats and help preserve healthy soils, just to name a few.  Studies are also showing human health is directly related to healthy forests.  But increasingly our forests are facing unprecedented threats… from invasive species and pathogens that can cause irreversible damage. Once again, science, and scientists are coming to the rescue.  Quietly studying these threats, coming up with devices to help uncover and stop them before they can establish and spread.  --- The Code of Life is a partnered program of Conversations That Matter, brought to you by GenomeBC.
