Genome BC collaborates with Chile and Norway to sequence salmon genome

isheries and aquaculture industries," says Genome BC's Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Pierre Meulien. "In addition, this research builds on knowledge obtained through earlier fisheries research funded by Genome BC."

Following the release of a Request for Proposals in June 2009, the Cooperation completed a rigorous international scientific peer review process and selected Beckman Coulter Genomics Inc., formerly Agencourt Bioscience and Cogenics, of Beverly, Massachusetts to fulfill the contract for phase one of the project.

Beckman Coulter Genomics, well known for their role in the sequencing of many high profile genomes, will complete phase one of the project, (worth approximately US $6 million,) by early 2011 and release the data as quickly as possible into the public domain.

"This research investment will result in an invaluable resource that can be used by any research group around the world," says Dr. Sigbjrn Lien of the Norwegian University of Life Sciences, and the Cooperation's Executive Science Committee.

Dr. Alejandro Maas of the University of Chile is also a member of the Executive Science Committee. "Through better understanding of this species, and its genome, this timely and strategic research collaboration will enable the growth and management of a global fishery," he says.
