Gene editing is a technique that Nofima has adopted in several of its aquaculture research projects. Here is some information about why and how Nofima uses this technique, along with references to some useful information for readers who would like to know more.
Do Pacific salmon species carry a secret they could share with Atlantic salmon? What is it in the genes that make these relatives of Atlantic salmon less susceptible to lice? Researchers will now find the answers to these questions, using the gene editing method CRISPR-Cas9.
We do research and provide services for the development and operation of aquaculture breeding programs, where the use of genomic information plays a central part.
