Advancing European Aquaculture by Genome Functional Annotation

Project description

Genomics is the key to securing the future of European aquaculture

Aquaculture, the controlled process of farming aquatic organisms, is the fastest growing food-producing sector in the world. Maintaining fish health is vital for effective production, but infectious diseases are a constant threat. The EU-funded AQUA-FAANG project aims to improve our understanding of genome function and of the usage of genotype-to-phenotype prediction in the six most important fish species in European aquaculture. Understanding how the complete genome of the fish is controlled may address key issues such as infectious diseases and can subsequently lead to sustainable and profitable aquaculture production. The project will create a consortium of experts that will develop a long-term interactive hub within basic genome biology research.
