Molecular analysis

The hereditary material present in all living cells, DNA, is well-suited for use in diagnosis. Our scientists use DNA-based methods to detect bacterial communities (microbiota) in food, people and production animals. Methods based on DNA and RNA are used to study bacterial function.

Breeding programmes

In the field of applied breeding programmes we combine traditional breeding techniques with new knowledge about genetics and the genome. We use and develop knowledge and techniques such that fish breeders can improve key properties of species in the aquaculture industry in an efficient manner.

Societal aspects of breeding and genetics

The aquaculture industry is an extensive and diverse industry of great economic value and benefit to society. As in other food industries, biological and technological solutions are often closely coupled with economics, law, ethics and the environment. These are disciplines that we at Nofima often integrate into our projects within breeding.
