      Most Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.) populations follow an anadromous life cycle, spending early life in freshwater, migrating to the sea for feeding, and returning to rivers to spawn. At the end of the last ice age ~10,000 ...

      Penglase, Samuel; Edvardsen, Rolf; Furmanek, Tomasz; Rønnestad, Ivar; Karlsen, Ørjan; van der Meeren, Terje; Hamre, Kristin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-08)
      The growth and development of marine fish larvae fed copepods is superior to those fed rotifers, but the underlying molecular reasons for this are unclear. In the following study we compared the effects of such diets on ...
    • Differential expression patterns of conserved miRNAs and isomiRs during Atlantic halibut development 

      Bizuayehu, Teshome; Lanes, Carlos Fredrico Ceccon; Furmanek, Tomasz; Karlsen, Bård Ove; Fernandes, Jorge; Johansen, Steinar Daae; Babiak, Igor (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-01-10)
      Background: MicroRNAs (miRNAs) play a major role in animal ontogenesis. Size variants of miRNAs, isomiRs, are observed along with the main miRNA types, but their origin and possible biological role are uncovered yet. ...
    • ReCodLiver0.9: Overcoming Challenges in Genome-Scale Metabolic Reconstruction of a Non-model Species 

      Hanna, Eileen Marie; Zhang, Xiaokang; Eide, Marta; Fallahi, Shirin; Furmanek, Tomasz; Yadetie, Fekadu; Zielinski, Daniel Craig; Goksøyr, Anders; Jonassen, Inge (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-11)
      The availability of genome sequences, annotations, and knowledge of the biochemistry underlying metabolic transformations has led to the generation of metabolic network reconstructions for a wide range of organisms in ...
    • The salmon louse genome: Copepod features and parasitic adaptations 

      Skern-Mauritzen, Rasmus; Malde, Ketil; Eichner, Christiane; Dondrup, Michael; Furmanek, Tomasz; Besnier, Francois; Komisarczuk, Anna Zofia; Nuhn, Michael; Dalvin, Sussie; Edvardsen, Rolf Brudvik; Klages, Sven; Huettel, Bruno; Stueber, Kurt; Grotmol, Sindre; Karlsbakk, Egil Erlingsson; Kersey, Paul; Leong, Jong S; Glover, Kevin Alan; Reinhardt, Richard; Lien, Sigbjørn; Jonassen, Inge; Koop, Ben F; Nilsen, Frank (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Copepods encompass numerous ecological roles including parasites, detrivores and phytoplankton grazers. Nonetheless, copepod genome assemblies remain scarce. Lepeophtheirus salmonis is an economically and ecologically ...
    • Transcriptome sequencing of Atlantic salmon ( Salmo salar L.) notochord prior to development of the vertebrae provides clues to regulation of positional fate, chordoblast lineage and mineralisation 

      Wang, Shou; Furmanek, Tomasz; Kryvi, Harald; Krossøy, Christel; Totland, Geir K.; Grotmol, Sindre; Wargelius, Anna (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-02-19)
      Background In teleosts such as Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L.), segmentation and subsequent mineralisation of the notochord during embryonic stages are essential for normal vertebrae formation. However, the molecular ...
    • The two-step development of a duplex retina involves distinct events of cone and rod neurogenesis and differentiation 

      Valen, Ragnhild; Eilertsen, Mariann; Edvardsen, Rolf; Furmanek, Tomasz; Rønnestad, Ivar; van der Meeren, Terje; Karlsen, Ørjan; Nilsen, Tom Ole; Helvik, Jon Vidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-08)
      Unlike in mammals, persistent postembryonic retinal growth is a characteristic feature of fish, which includes major remodeling events that affect all cell types including photoreceptors. Consequently, visual capabilities ...
    • Vgll3 and the Hippo pathway are regulated in Sertoli cells upon entry and during puberty in Atlantic salmon testis 

      Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Ayllon, Fernando; Kleppe, Lene; Sørhus, Elin; Skaftnesmo, Kai Ove; Furmanek, Tomasz; Segafredo, Frida Thyri; Thorsen, Anders; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Taranger, Geir Lasse; Andersson, Eva; Schulz, Rüdiger W.; Wargelius, Anna; Edvardsen, Rolf (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-01-30)
      Vgll3 is linked to age at maturity in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar). However, the molecular mechanisms involving Vgll3 in controlling timing of puberty as well as relevant tissue and cell types are currently unknown. Vgll3 ...
    • The vgll3 Locus Controls Age at Maturity in Wild and Domesticated Atlantic Salmon(Salmo salar L.) Males 

      Ayllon, Fernando; Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Furmanek, Tomasz; Wennevik, Vidar; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Dahle, Geir; Taranger, Geir Lasse; Glover, Kevin; Sällman Almèn, Markus; Rubin, Carl J.; Edvardsen, Rolf; Wargelius, Anna (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-11-09)
      Wild and domesticated Atlantic salmon males display large variation for sea age at sexual maturation, which varies between 1–5 years. Previous studies have uncovered a genetic predisposition for variation of age at maturity ...
