Using genomics to enhance aquaculture in Canada

Genomics — a combination of biology, genetics and computer science — will be used in two projects in Atlantic Canada to help improve the region’s aquaculture industry. The projects were among 12 industry-academic partnerships that received funding through Genome Canada’s Genomic Applications Partnership Program (GAPP) announced by Ed Holder, the Minister of State for Science and Technology on Oct. 15. The aim is to improve breeding and feed formulas.
