Biography Muhammad Luqman Aslam
I completed my PhD from Wagneingen University, the Netherlands with dissertation entitled “Genetic control and variation in turkey: molecular insights in selection”. After PhD I did two postdocs, one from OSU, USA on Aquaculture genomics where I worked on fresh water fish species for the development of genomics resources using RAD-Seq. The 2nd postdoc was at NUS, Singapore where I mapped loci for eyespot number variation in wild vs. mutant B. anynana populations using 2d-RAD-Seq approach, and re-assembled the genome of B. annynana with significant improvement using Illumina and PacBio sequence data. Currently at Nofima, I am contributing in different projects on marine and fresh water fish species.
In short, from the last 4 years I had been mostly working on genomics, molecular genetics, bioinformatics and quantitative genetics with effort of searching answer to scientific biological questions, and hope of contributing in improvement of available knowledge with applied perspectives.
Muhammad Luqman Aslam has 11 publications at Nofima:
1. March 2019 – 28. February 2023
Identify and validate candidate genes for CMS resistance in Atlantic salmon through state-of-the-art gene editing.
1. May 2017 – 30. April 2021
MedAID (Mediterranean Aquaculture Integrated Development), a four year EU H2020 research project, will address key factors to improve aquaculture production in the Mediterranean.
The project brings together the best aquaculture experts from over 30 organisations from 12 countries.
1. January 2017 – 31. December 2019
The primary objective of FutureFish is to improve the robustness of salmon and lumpfish under a changing climate scenario through investigating the genetics of robustness in salmon to thermal stress and sea-lice and improving the sea-lice eating ability of lumpfish.
