Final Report - AQUAFIRST (Combined genetic and functional genomic approaches for stress and disease resistance marker assisted selection in fish and shellfish)

Project ID: 513692
Funded under: FP6-POLICIES

Abstract

This is the final report of the AQUAFIRST project, which aimed to identify, in sea bream, sea bass, oyster, and rainbow trout, genes of which expression is associated with disease and stress resistance and, from this information, to develop genetic approaches that allow characterisation of genetic markers for marker-assisted selective breeding of disease and / or stress resistant individuals. The report begins with some background on aquaculture and relative research on genetic causes of diseases and stress resistance and then explains the project's objectives. It then goes into detail about the work performed during the four designated parts, which have been developed over three and a half years. Finally, there are general conclusions, based on the research and findings.
