A national programme on functional genomic studies on Atlantic salmon and cod.

The main objective of this project is:

  •  To establish structural and functional genomic knowledge in Atlantic salmon and cod in order to solve biological problems associated with management and harvest of wild stocks and further development of a substantial aquaculture production of salmon and cod in Norway.
  •  Bring the competence in marine molecular biology up to a high international level for the central fishery research institutions of Norway.
