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."
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.
