Bridging genomes: An integrated genomic approach toward genetic improvement of aquacultured fish species

Objective

The present project will use a far reaching but parsimonious approach to transfer genetic information from model organisms to commercial species; transfer technology and know-how from leading laboratories in genome analysis and mapping to more classical fish genetics laboratories, as well as knowledge from and interesting biological model, the sea bream, in the opposite direction; bridge the gaps in maps by merging physicals and linkage maps; bridge the distance between research and industry; integrate evolutionary theory and modern technology to generate an applied endpoint; integrate genome maps of various teleost with data from higher vertebrates, thanks to the high potential of comparative mapping. The project workplan is centered round the application of modern biotechnological methods to aquaculture.
