A number of projects, using molecular technologies and a functional genomics approach to improve sustainability of European aquaculture, have been funded within the EU 5th and 6th frame work program. An integration of the outcome of these projects would undoubtedly contribute to build a large common knowledge base in this area. A synthesis of the different data sets can be expected to give a potentiated effect, creating a more significant output than the sum of the individual projects. Integration and communication of the different projects outcome would also reduce possible overlap both currently and in the future. Bringing together a large number of research groups/projects in a common forum should generate a critical mass and improve European and International visibility in this important area of production. The overall aim of the present project is to integrate the outcome of the projects within Framework Program 5 and 6 that concern genome mapping and functional genomics in aquaculture, in order to generate a common scientific basis of a functional genomics approach to aquaculture. This will be achieved through a series of instruments including work group meetings, analyse and combining of results in joint scientific publications as well as the creation of a common internet site containing both public and restricted, accessible for registered scientific members, areas.
