Community Research and Development Information Service - CORDIS


Within the framework of the Community's biotechnology research programmes, groups of contractors were brought together to constitute ELWWs, with a view to facilitating the rapid circulation and exchange of information, data and materials, and increasing mobility among research staff. The purpose of this brochure is to illustrate the work of one such ELWW in the field of fish genes and the regulation of their expression. Not only are fish excellent vertebrate models but also this information can be used in investigations into the treatment of disease, environmental control, reproductive control and breeding. The research includes attempts at the isolation of fish genes and fish promoters and the implementation of a test case on genetic resistance against viral infection in trout. Two groups of fish species are used: freshwater fish and economic species (for example, salmonids and cod).
