Dr. Sean Myles is the Canada Research Chair in Agricultural Genetic Diversity at Dalhousie University. A New Brunswick native, he received his training at Oxford, the Max Planck Institute, Cornell and Stanford before settling in Wolfville. He is deciphering the genetic codes of agricultural species in order to accelerate the breeding of improved food. His research focuses on apples: he established and manages the Apple Biodiversity Collection – an orchard with over 1000 different apple varieties at the federal research station in Kentville. He aims to educate the public about genetics and food with videos and blogs via his website
