Global Biological Editing specializes in editing the English in biological manuscripts written by scientists whose native language is not English. The editor, Dr. William Blackhall (BSc/MSc/PhD), lives in Canada. His early training in zoology led to a BSc from the University of Guelph in Wildlife Biology. After working at Canada\'s National Museum of Natural Sciences (now the Museum of Nature) in Canada\'s capital, Ottawa, Dr. Blackhall entered the field of plant breeding with the Alberta Wheat Pool, BioTechnica Canada, and Pioneer Hi-Bred International. Eventually, his interests turned to the molecular aspects of life, particularly genetics. A return to university led to an MSc in molecular phylogenetics from the University of Alberta and a PhD in population genetics from McGill University in Montreal. Dr. Blackhall has conducted scientific research at universities in Canada, Australia, and Europe and has edited biological documents over a period of 17 years.
