The Aqua Genome Project (external) (completed)

About the project

Description from the project website:

"Aquaculture and fisheries of Atlantic salmon and cod face considerable future challenge from factors including disease, climate change, and product quality. This project aims to create a foundation for sustainable production of these species through dissecting the genetic basis of observed phenotypic variation, and gaining a deep understanding of how the genomes are influenced by artificial selection and the environment."

Contact person at TIK is Kristin Asdal. For further information, see the project website.


The Aqua Genome Project is a cooperation project supported by the Norwegian Research Council. TIK is a partner, along With Nofima, CIGENE, AquaGen and CEES. The project runs until the end of June 2016.
