The main research focus of Kanata Earth Genetics is to engage in long term R&D that will provide a sustainable pipeline for the development of various strains best suited for the pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, research, and medical industries.
Our science teams are led by Prof Dr Tim Sharbel based at the University of Saskatchewan and Dr. Igor Kovalchuk and Dr. Darryl Hudson of the University of Lethbridge. Their combined work will focus on genome sequencing, high throughput metabolomic analyses and novel reproductive tools for generating and stabilizing particular genotypes/chemotypes of cannabis.
