Congratulations to 2019 Research Excellence Awards recipient, Dr. Angela Canovas

Bioinformatics faculty member, Dr. Angela Canovas (Department of Animal Biosciences), is one of five early-career researchers awarded 2019 Research Excellence Awards from the University of Guelph.

Her research aims to improve the beef industry through efficient livestock feeding that reduces methane emissions. By identifying pertinent genes, she will help producers breed their herds for more efficient, less emissive cattle.
