      Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a large, cold-adapted teleost that sustains long-standing commercial fisheries and incipient aquaculture. Here we present the genome sequence of Atlantic cod, showing evidence for complex ...
    • Genomic analysis reveals neutral and adaptive patterns that challenge the current management regime for East Atlantic cod Gadus morhua L 

      Johansen, Torild; Besnier, Francois; Sanchez, Maria Quintela; Jorde, Per Erik; Glover, Kevin; Westgaard, Jon-Ivar; Dahle, Geir; Lien, Sigbjørn; Kent, Matthew Peter (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Challenging long‐held perceptions of fish management units can help to protect vulnerable stocks. When a fishery consisting of multiple genetic stocks is managed as a single unit, overexploitation and depletion of minor ...
    • Human-induced evolution caught in action: SNP-array reveals rapid amphi-atlantic spread of pesticide resistance in the salmon ecotoparasite Lepeophtheirus salmonis 

      Besnier, Francois; Kent, Matthew; Skern-Mauritzen, Rasmus; Lien, Sigbjørn; Malde, Ketil; Edvardsen, Rolf; Taylor, Simon; Ljungfeldt, Lina; Nilsen, Frank; Glover, Kevin (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2014-10-26)
      Background: The salmon louse, Lepeophtheirus salmonis, is an ectoparasite of salmonids that causes huge economic losses in salmon farming, and has also been causatively linked with declines of wild salmonid populations. ...
    • Identification and characterisation of novel SNP markers in Atlantic cod: Evidence for directional selection 

      Moen, Thomas; Hayes, Ben; Nilsen, Frank; Delghandi, Madjid; Fjalestad, Kjersti T.; Fevolden, Svein-Erik; Berg, Paul R.; Lien, Sigbjørn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2008-02-26)
      Background The Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) is a groundfish of great economic value in fisheries and an emerging species in aquaculture. Genetic markers are needed to identify wild stocks in order to ensure sustainable ...
