• Autosomal sdY pseudogenes explain discordances between phenotypic sex and DNA marker for sex identification in Atlantic salmon 

      Ayllon, Fernando; Solberg, Monica Favnebøe; Besnier, Francois; Fjelldal, Per Gunnar; Hansen, Tom Johnny; Wargelius, Anna; Edvardsen, Rolf Brudvik; Glover, Kevin (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Despite the key role that sex-determination plays in evolutionary processes, it is still poorly understood in many species. In salmonids, which are among the best studied fishes, the master sex-determining gene sexually ...
    • Comparison of anadromous and landlocked Atlantic salmon genomes reveals signatures of parallel and relaxed selection across the Northern Hemisphere 

      Kjærner-Semb, Erik Nordtorp; Edvardsen, Rolf Brudvik; Ayllon, Fernando; Vogelsang, Petra; Furmanek, Tomasz; Rubin, Carl-Johan; Veselov, Alexey E.; Nilsen, Tom Ole; McCormick, Stephen D.; Primmer, Craig R.; Wargelius, Anna (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      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 ...
    • 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 ...
